INTERNSHIPS & SEASONAL FIELD COURSES
Third Millennium Alliance is dedicated to offering young scientists from around the world an affordable and high-quality learning adventure in the Neotropics. Our Internship and Seasonal Field Course programs are designed to provide a unique opportunity to gain practical field skills by participating in intensive, hands-on research – all while living in beautiful tropical rainforest environments. With the establishment of TMA’s flagship research program, El Observatorio de Aves Jama-Coaque (OAJC, aka The Jama-Coaque Bird Observatory), in late 2017, these internships have taken a unique and delightfully birdy turn. As in our previous internship offerings, we still ensure participants experience all steps of the scientific process and issues relating to applied conservation. Now, however, we also provide additional focus on developing technical and in-demand skillsets such as mist-netting and bird banding, not to mention a much more hands-on experience with tropical wildlife! We are also more committed than ever to providing budding Ecuadorian scientists with affordable and accessible learning experiences. After spending a month or more participating in a TMA internship, students and scientists will return home equipped with all the tools necessary to excel in graduate school and/or careers in science and conservation. We look forward to you joining our team soon!
