M.S. in Animals and Public Policy (MAPP) Externship Experience
Publishing and Policy: A Summer Externship at WildEarth Guardians
My summer externship was at WildEarth Guardians, based in the Denver office. I worked in the wildlife division, focusing on campaigns to ban wildlife killing contests and cruel trapping in Nevada. Related to these topics, I engaged in extensive research and analysis which ultimately resulted in published Op-Ed’s and a webinar. MAPP provided me with the writing skills for advocacy that allowed me to develop persuasive content for Guardians’ supporters. I am confident that MAPP, and my time at Guardians, has set me up to be an engaging and effective advocate for animals and for the environment.
