You can carry out an online English-speaking internship in a world-renowned bear conservation project in Karuizawa located in the mountains of Japan!
The forests around Karuizawa are full of biodiversity, famously known for its Asian Black Bears (Ursus thibetanus).
The goal of the project is to keep the bears out of the city, where they risk being shot because they pose a danger to humans, overall, to maintain the biodiversity of the area.
This internship is aimed at students or professionals of biology, zoology, ecology, veterinary medicine and similar related courses.
Apart from dealing with bear conservation, Karuizawa also carries out Guided Walking Tours where tourists/visitors can learn about plants and animals around the area, such as wild boars, Japanese macaques (Snow Monkeys), as well as birds such as Copper Pheasants and Green Woodpeckers. They also carry such tours at night where tourists/visitors can see the Flying Squirrels in the area which are among the largest of their specie in the world.
Tasks for online Interns are to write articles/texts about the bear conservation projects carried out in Karuizawa for:
(a) Academic Journals and Publications,
(b) Magazines that are dealing with animals and environmental conservation.
You will get all required information to write the articles from, by communicating via Skype with a qualified English-speaking conservation biologists of the project.
These articles can be written in native languages of the remote online interns (besides English, also German, French, Spanish, Chinese etc).
