Project Description

Join the State Department's Regional Environmental Office covering South America! We are a small but passionate team located at the U.S. Embassy in Lima, Peru, working with U.S. Embassies and Consulates throughout South America on cross-border environmental challenges.

The U.S. government is actively supporting the galvanization of SUDWEN, the South America Wildlife Enforcement Network. The future success of this network depends on getting the right people involved from each country. We need an intern to analyze government structure and identify the entities involved in wildlife trafficking enforcement, prosecution, and policymaking. We are also are interested in your ideas to further our additional projects.
