Another two youths begin their career in the conservation of biodiversity through the PLCM

The interns, Atairis Massonganha, trained in Economics, and Talven Samuel Jackson, trained in Public Administration and Management, in November began their activities of a pre-professional internship in the World Wide Fund For Nature – WWF.

The internship lasts for 6 months and is taking place in the central offices of WWF. During this period, the youths will have the opportunity to apply the knowledge they acquired during training for the benefit of biodiversity.

Atairis Massonganha, hopes to end the internship with a different vision of the conservation of biodiversity and to acquire a professional attitude.

I hope to come out of the internship endowed with relevant knowledge applicable in the conservation sector and in society in general. I shall also give my best in using my knowledge for the protection of nature”.

The integration of the interns into WWF is the result of the partnership between that organisation and the Foundation for the Conservation of Biodiversity – BIOFUND in the context of implementing the internships of the Mozambique Programme for Leadership in Conservation – PLCM.

The PLCM seeks to motivate for the conservation of biodiversity not only traditional conservation professionals, but also professionals from other areas of knowledge, which are all relevant and necessary for conservation. In this context, over the next six months it is intended to integrate about 20 interns in various partner institutions nationally.
