Fieldwork Internship Opportunities with Para La Tierra


At Para La Tierra, we are offering students the unique opportunity to carry out their own projects in wildlife research and environmental education, while gaining hands-on experience in conservation efforts for extremely threatened habitats in Paraguay. And until September 7th, we are offering a special discount for students at Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München!

Read on and have a look at the attached flyer to learn more about our internship programme:

Fundación Para La Tierra is a Paraguayan award-winning research and conservation organisation. We are dedicated to the conservation of fragile habitats in Paraguay, with the vision to change the course of Paraguayan environmentalism by inspiring people to appreciate the value of nature.

We achieve our mission through three primary initiatives: Scientific Research, Community Engagement, and Environmental Education.

Para La Tierra offers professionally supervised internships in these three areas to help students boost their career prospects while contributing to long-term conservation in Paraguay. A vast majority of our former interns are able to transfer their experience with us into a successful start to their master's studies, PhD programmes, and postgraduate careers.

Our internship programme allows students to develop and conduct their own project in either conservation research or environmental education under supervision of our award-winning staff members.

Young biologists are given the chance to step out of the classroom and into the field, gaining hands-on experience running a research project of their own design. Paraguay’s highly understudied fauna and habitats offer the perfect study environment for conducting ground-breaking research with a grand chance of publishing results. Over the past 12 years, Para La Tierra discovered more than 10 new species and has published over 130 peer-reviewed articles with the help of more than 500 interns.

We also offer students interested in environmental education the opportunity to take part in our Eco-Club programme Voces de la Naturaleza. Founded in 2015, it was designed to transform the way that Paraguayan youth learn about their environment. Throughout the past 7 years, our Voces de la Naturaleza programme has grown into a network of 36 Eco-Clubs, providing a safe space for hundreds of children to engage their creativity and learn about the natural world. Our education interns get the opportunity to be part of this incredible journey while gaining hands-on experience in educational techniques.

And now to our special discount: We have a special offer for students at Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München, where we will take $150 off the 3-month price and even $400 off the 6-month price! To secure this discount, students simply need to apply until September 7th and mention the code ‘PLTFam2022’.

We hope you will circulate these unique experiences with our special discount to your students, faculties, and departments, and are looking forward to welcoming interns from Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München in Paraguay soon!
