WHO WE ARE


Since 1951, The Nature Conservancy has been doing work you can believe in protecting the lands and waters that all life depends on. As a science-based organization, we create innovative, on-the-ground solutions to our world’s toughest challenges so that we can create a world in which people and nature thrive.

We’re rooted in our Mission and guided by our Values, which includes a Commitment to Diversity and Respect for People, Communities, and Cultures. We know we’ll only achieve our Mission by hiring and engaging a diverse workforce that reflects the communities in which we work. Whether it’s career development, work/life balance, or a rewarding mission, there’s lots of reasons to love life #insideTNC. Our goal is to cultivate an inclusive work environment so that all of our colleagues around the globe feel a sense of belonging, and that their unique contributions to our mission are valued.

In addition to the minimum requirements in our postings, we recognize that people come with talent and experiences outside of a job. Passion, innovation, and diversity are all key components to advancing our Mission and we encourage you to apply.

All TNC staff based in the U.S. or a U.S. Territory are required to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Proof of receiving one of the vaccines approved in the U.S. (Pfizer, Moderna, or Johnson & Johnson) shall be condition of employment and must be provided prior to starting work. TNC is an Equal Opportunity Employer, and reasonable accommodations for candidates who cannot be vaccinated due to a valid medical or religious reason, or claim an exemption under applicable state law will be considered.

WHAT WE CAN ACHIEVE TOGETHER


There has never been a more important time to help the public value nature and its role in shaping our future. Seizing this moment, The Nature Conservancy in New Hampshire is striving to engage a variety of audiences to cultivate an informed, motivated, diverse, inclusive and engaged conservation community to address the planet’s pressing 21st century environmental challenges. Now is your chance to help make this happen! The Communications Intern—you!—will be given the opportunity to build bridges between people and nature by actively telling the stories of work being done in New Hampshire to protect and restore natural resources for people, plants and wildlife, combat climate change, and how these efforts connect to the Conservancy’s work around the world. Your internship will focus on print, social and digital media, with the opportunity to experience the diverse landscape of conservation communications.
