Intern to protect the Buffalo Herds of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem and Yellowstone National Park this winter!
Buffalo Field Campaign (BFC) is seeking the skills, interest, and passion of Undergraduate and Graduate Interns for the 2023-24 Field Season!
BFC Field Season Interns participate in Field Patrols to observe and protect Buffalo during their migration from Yellowstone National Park to lower elevations in native habitat in the surrounding area to sustainably graze during the winter months and calve in their traditional calving grounds.
During our Field Season, we conduct daily patrols to monitor Buffalo Migration corridors, collect data, and provide Outreach and Media for any threats to the population.
You will be part of a team that observes and records Buffalo movements on foot, in hiking boots, on cross-country skis, and in Field Patrol Vehicles. You will participate in facilitating safe
Highway crossings for the Buffalo and be an active participant in observing any State and Federal Agency Management actions including hunting activities.
Specialized Internships available in:

- Journalism including Photo-journalism and Documentary Film
- Office-based Outreach (can be 100% Office-based)

All Interns receive a Mentor in their area of Specialization.
