Join the Crees Foundation in the Manu Learning Centre, a remote research hub based in the Amazon Rainforest in Peru. This 3 month Amazon Rainforest internship is perfect for career development in environmental journalism and communications… and that’s even mentioning the incredible location you’ll have access to. This is the very same research centre that starred in the BBC documentary I Bought a Rainforest in 2014, and has had National Geographic visiting on a regular basis for stories.
The Manu Learning Centre provides access to a wealth of wildlife. Just a few steps from your bed, you’ll be in a jungle which is home to the likes of jaguar, puma, spider monkeys, woolly monkeys, howler monkeys, squirrel monkeys, incredible invertebrates, and much more.
Every day in the Peruvian Amazon will be spent exploring the rainforest, getting to know its incredible wildlife, and living with a group of like-minded people from across the world. The research camp is at the heart of conservation science for rainforest biomes, and you’ll get to work with real scientists who are publishing real, groundbreaking data.
Manu is the most biodiverse place on the planet, with thousands of different species to be found within the jungle.
You can expect your Amazon Rainforest internship to:
- Provide practical, hands-on training in written, photographic, and film media
- Offer mentorship by highly trained professionals who will provide weekly workshops and assignments
- Produce a professional portfolio of published work to showcase skills to future employers
- Provide careers advice and development through one-to-one tutorials
- Develop career confidence
A typical day in Manu looks like this:
- 5.30am – Wake up to catch an incredible sunrise over the Amazon Rainforest from the river’s edge
- 6am – Monitor macaws at a clay lick, learning how to record data researchers need
- 7am – After breakfast, head out into the rainforest and capture images of butterflies, amphibians, reptiles, and maybe even primates
- 12.30pm – Head back to camp for lunch
- 2.00pm – 5.00pm – Take part in a media workshop to learn essential skills
- 6.30pm – Practice Spanish, share stories, and engage with locals in camp
- 9.00pm – Gaze at the incredible starry skies as you head to bed, ready to do it all again!
Your booking fee will ensure that you are fed, three times a day, and have a roof over your head for your 3 month stay.
