The Wild Salmon Center in Portland has an immediate opening for an unpaid GIS Intern to support our conservation work. Work will include a mix of cartography, database analysis, and data editing. A first project will be the development of maps that are accessible via Google Earth or Google Maps. This is an unpaid internship. Interns will receive mentoring and real-world experience using GIS in a fast-paced international conservation organization. Its a great way to apply ESRI or Google Earth skills learned in the classroom and pick up a lot more. Class or University credit is possible with the consent of academic faculty. Other benefits include free Tri-met passes. Hours are flexible based upon student needs. Applicants should have completed at least one course in GIS, have basic skills in Excel, and be dedicated to conservation. Previous experience with internet mapping is a plus. Please fill the internship application at http://www.wildsalmoncenter.org/pdf/Volunteer_InternApplication.pdf and send to Tom Miewald (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The mission of the Wild Salmon Center is to identify, understand and protect the best wild salmon ecosystems of the Pacific Rim. We devise and implement practical strategies, based on the best science, to protect forever these extraordinary places and their biodiversity.
