Applications are now open for the 2009 Kinship Conservation Fellows program located in Bellingham, Washington. Kinship is designed to equip select career conservationists with effective tools for solving environmental problems through market-based principles.
A month at Kinship is a rare opportunity for conservation professionals to explore new ideas and renew their inspiration for their work while learning from and collaborating with a truly exceptional group of Fellows and faculty. As one of the 2007 Fellows put it,
“I spend my life (luckily!) working in teams of committed, enthusiastic, intelligent, sympathetic, fun and creative people. It’s normal for me. I’m used to it. But this group was something incredible.”
Charlie Avis, 2007 Fellow
“One Europe More Nature” Project Leader, WWF International
The 2009 program will take place from June 24-July 24 in Bellingham, Washington. Kinship will be accepting applications for the 2009 cohort through January 31, 2008. Applications should be submitted online. Eighteen Fellows will be selected to participate. Please visit the Kinship website for more information or to download a 2009 brochure and fact sheet.
Kinship is committed not only to establishing Kinship Conservation Fellows as the premier conservation leadership training program, but also to forging a dynamic community of environmental leaders. Kinship looks forward to your feedback and possible interest in joining this select group of individuals.
