Internships and Volunteer positions
Ningaloo Turtle Program
Ningaloo Coast World Heritage Area (near Exmouth), WA
The Ningaloo Turtle Program (NTP) is a volunteer turtle conservation program run by the Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions (Parks and Wildlife Service) and the local Exmouth community. Green, loggerhead and hawksbill turtles nest in the Ningaloo Coast World Heritage Area.
These are threatened species and the data collected by the NTP is used to inform management and conservation while minimising human and predator impact on their survival.
Each summer during the turtle nesting season, the NTP recruits interns and volunteers from all over Australia to help us with the program. Participants are trained in turtle track monitoring techniques, turtle interaction protocols and turtle rescues. Volunteers each walk a section of beach at sunrise to record turtle activity.
The NTP is currently advertising for:
3 x Team Leader Volunteer Internship positions (8.5 weeks)
1 x Communications Internship position (8.5 weeks)
12 x Volunteer positions (5 weeks)
How to apply:View details
People interested in the internship and /or volunteer positions are encouraged to apply by 4pm (WA time) Friday, 30th July 2021.

Please note: COVID-19 travel restrictions may still apply when the program is due to commence. Therefore we are accepting applications only from people already in Australia. Final acceptance into the NTP will be contingent on the ability to travel within and between states. Thanks for your flexibility and understanding.
