OceanWatch Australia is seeking a volunteer intern to work on our Tide to Tip program. The Tide to Tip program is a series of Australian oyster industry led clean-up events through which oysters farmers can lead and participate in clean-ups within and surrounding Australian waterways. The inaugural event in February 2020 involved over 270 oyster farmers from 22 oyster producing estuaries who removed 11.5 tonnes of waste from Australia’s waterways.
The role will be to assist in the organisation and planning of the 2021 Tide to Tip, with the opportunity to travel and take part in the events in Feb 2021. It will involve liaising with councils, oyster farmers and other interested groups to prepare for the events. The time commitment is 1 day a week from November 2020 until the end of February 2021. The actual event will take place over the last 2 weeks of February where there will be the opportunity to commit more time to taking part in these events. Ideally the candidate will be based on the NSW coast however this is not required as the position is remote with the exception of the events themselves and occasional meetings with oyster farmers. Limited expenses will be covered.
If you are interested in this opportunity please send your resume to firstname.lastname@example.org (first aid certificate required). Closing date for applications is the 6th November.
