NWPS Welcomes Volunteer Intern from Germany

Spring is such a wonderful season. It is a time of fresh, new beginnings. Days are getting longer, flowers are starting to bloom, many new animals are born. It is also a time when Northwest Wildlife Preservation Society typically begins the growth of its team.

Christina StaalwirthYoung people around the world are increasingly looking to gain experience in the growing field of non-profits. NWPS has been fortunate to have hosted many international interns as well as local co-op students over the years. We are regularly sought out for placements of young adults wanting to contribute to wildlife conservation in Canada. Today we welcome our newest international intern who has come to us all the way from Germany. Christina Staalwirth will be with us for the next two and a half months on a general volunteer internship through the wonderful INTERNeX International Exchange program.

Christina says, “I am very excited to join the team of NWPS and to get in touch with the beautiful wildlife of British Columbia as well as doing my part to preserve it for our future. I just recently did my master’s degree in psychology in Germany and since I’ve always been fascinated with nature and the environment now is my time to contribute. I am hoping to be able to support NWPS with my expertise in market research and public relations. Looking forward to spend my time here in beautiful Vancouver with NWPS!”
