This is an exciting opportunity to help us engage with a wide range of people and raise awareness of the global importance of the peatlands of Caithness and Sutherland, an area known as The Flow Country. The Flow Country is the best blanket bog of its type in the world and a key resource in the fight against climate change. The Flows to the Future Project is far reaching, ambitious and aims to significantly increase the level of conservation management and promotional activities currently being undertaken. To complete this internship you will need to be 18 years or older and able to commit for a full 7 months from March to September. 

You will work primarily with our Learning Development and Communities Officers to build upon our existing work and increase our reach across this large area. This includes developing learning sessions for primary and secondary schools, building and delivering a summer programme of events for local youth groups, organising and supporting a programme of community events across the Flow Country, contributing to our marketing and communications work and exploring the opportunities to promote our new film, 3D landscape model and computer game to a wider audience.

This role is based at the RSPB Forsinard Flows National Nature Reserve but will work across the remote and beautiful landscapes of Caithness and Sutherland. We will provide you with training in a wide range of engagement activities and environmental education skills through courses, shadowing and with ongoing mentoring. Free accommodation is provided in our new field centre.
