Internship: The Altai Project (Altai)

Deadline for Applications: Ongoing

The region is in danger from climate change, poaching, and increased tourism leading to more construction and energy projects.

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