Overview World Wildlife Fund (WWF), one of the world’s leading conservation organizations, seeks two intern positions – one Marine and one Terrestrial Protected Area Downgrading, Downsizing, and Degazettement (PADDD) Intern.   The Earth for Life department of the World Wildlife Fund is seeking part-time or full-time interns to research the extent of PADDD in global marine OR terrestrial areas. Conservation policy assumes that protected areas are permanent, but reality suggests otherwise. PADDD events are legal changes that affect protected areas by tempering restrictions, reducing boundaries, or erasing them entirely.   At the recent United Nations Biodiversity Conference (COP15) representatives from 188 governments agreed on the latest Global Biodiversity Framework (GBF). This framework sets ambitious goals targets for protecting nature by 2030 and renews focus on expanded ambitions for area-based conservation. With the energy of the updated GBF and the IUCN resolution from the last World Conservation Congress, there is increased interest in understanding and documenting PADDD.   WWF and partners are analyzing patterns, trends, and causes of PADDD and their implications for the sustainability of conservation efforts. Outputs of this internship may include maps and graphs of PADDD patterns, trends, causes, and conservation impacts.
