The Smithsonian Institution’s Gabon Biodiversity Program focuses its studies in the Gamba Complex, an area with high biodiversity, including elephants, gorillas and sea turtles, and the largest oil exploration and development in Gabon. The program seeks to increase knowledge, understanding and awareness of biodiversity in the Gamba landscape, minimize the impact of development on biodiversity, and increase local capacity to manage and develop natural resources. Interns will assist with a variety of projects, depending on the program’s needs. These may include field research, conservation education, material development and other conservation initiatives.
