About: The World Wildlife Fund (WWF) is a NGO that has become a leading environmental organization in the world with more than 1,300 conservation projects underway around the world. WWF teams up with local non-profit agencies and global NGOs to form relationships with village elders, local councils, and regional government offices. The major project of the Madagascar office is the Western Indian Ocean Marine Protected Areas Network Project. The project’s overall goal is to contribute to the maintenance of the biodiversity in marine and coastal resources of the Western Indian Ocean marine eco-region through a coherent regional network of effectively managed Marine Protected Areas (MPAs).
Intern responsibilities: Intern responsibilities may include developing marketing and communications content, writing articles and reports for different audiences, contributing to the development of communication goals, objectives, events and action plans, assisting in translation, and potentially managing communications projects.
Qualifications: Candidates should have interests in biology and journalism. IIP candidates with interest in communications, journalism, environmental education, conservation and/or biology are encouraged to apply. Proficiency in French would be an asset, as would skills in writing, video-editing, and content management systems.
Previous work experiences (in the words of past IIP interns): Intern #1: I interned in the communications department. My responsibilities included translations of small news articles written by the department from French into English. I also re-organized the country program's photo database. Other duties included creating templates for thank-yous to donors as well as other rewards promised to them, doing research on email marketing services, promoting an upcoming book which will be released by the organization and editing website content. Intern #2: During my internship, I worked on the first Annual Report produced by this office, updated fact sheets about WWF priority landscapes, worked on social media, posted and edited blog material. I've learned specific skills like using Adobe InDesign and figuring out CMS.
