SUMMER INTERNSHIP OPPORTUNITY: Jatun Sacha is Accepting Applications for Their Research Internships (Deadline: n/a)


The Jatun Sacha foundation is a non-governmental, nonprofit organization dedicated to the conservation of tropical, aquatic and high land ecosystems. The foundation was established in 1986 and has since then successfully contributed to the conservation of Ecuador’s pristine and precious ecosystems.

The Jatun Sacha foundation in Ecuador is organizing a science and research internship on amphibians and mammals during this summer break.

The courses will take place from July 23 until August 12, 2018 in Ecuador’s Choco Rainforest, Amazon and Highlands, three of the most biodiverse areas of the world.

These internships provide an excellent opportunity for biology and ecology students to learn about Ecuador’s fauna and ecosystems in a natural classroom, having direct contact with nature as well as an unforgettable experience in the breathtaking scenery of Ecuador.

The amphibian and mammal courses will run in parallel, therefore students have to register either for the course on amphibians or for the course on mammals.
