Internship: The Altai Project (Altai)

Deadline for Applications: Ongoing

The Altai region, encompassing land in Russia, Kazakhstan, China, and Mongolia, is a unique environment home to many threatened and endangered species. Historical artifacts, such as petroglyphs and burial mounds, dating all the way back to the Stone Age are located in the relatively untouched region, with local significance for indigenous populations and international visitors. The region is in danger from climate change, poaching, and increased tourism leading to more construction and energy projects.

The Altai Project has regular short-term opportunities and internships for people with relevant expertise to get involved: natural sciences, issues of concern to indigenous peoples, climate change, alternative energy and energy conservation, natural building and sustainable design, land use planning, wildlife biology.

They are also in regular need of volunteer translators (Russian, Altaian, and English), web support, graphic designers/desktop publishing, and writers/editors.

To participate with them, contact the Altai Project with a proposal or email Jennifer Castner, Director of the Altai Project, at jennifer@altaiproject.org
