Intern with us!

The Bahamas National Trust hosts two science interns each summer. This program is available only to Bahamian students in college or university who are majoring in Biology, Environmental Science, or related fields. The internship usually runs in May and June for six weeks. During this internship, selected individuals will be given a chance to experience various aspects of working in the area of natural sciences in The Bahamas.

Interns will be able to:

  • learn 100 organisms (plants and animals) found in The Bahamas
  • travel to and assist with research on at least one Family Island
  • assist with collecting data in the national parks
  • much more!

Students must be self-motivated, able to work alone and on a team, have an interest in the Bahamian environment, and have an open mind.

2021 Internship Conditions

We are looking for six (6) interns (two (2) each) on the islands of New Providence, Grand Bahama, and Andros. This year will mainly be focusing on projects under or related to the upcoming “Rewilding The Bahamas” campaign, including the Integrated Coastal Zone Management (ICZM) and Northern Bahamas Mangrove Restoration (NBMR) Projects.

Additionally, due to the ongoing global pandemic, we will be unable to offer the usual Family Island research trip to our interns. This will be compensated by regular excursions and field trips across your island to help with the aforementioned projects and give hands-on experiences.

The 2021 Summer Science Internship will run from July 5th to August 13th.
