Conservation Practice Teams

Conservation Practice Teams deepen skills and knowledge, build professional networks and help realize career paths.

Conservation Practice Teams (CPT), the Year 2 internship, supports scholars as they engage with conservation issues in partnership with a host site (a government agency, community organization or NGO) positioned within the conservation field, or who works at the intersections of biodiversity conservation, cultural identity and environmental justice.
