About

In March 2013 in Bangkok, Thailand, Sea Save Foundation representatives joined the U.S. Department of the Interior, Interpol, and other high-profile NGOs at the Conference of the Parties to the Convention on International Trade of Endangered Species (CITES). Representatives of 178 nations systematically reviewed lengthy proposals and decided which animals would be protected under international trade regulations.

Sea Save Foundation worked closely with national representatives, scientists, and other NGOs to advocate the protection of six marine species. While the proposals were strongly contested, our efforts were successful, and all five species were placed on the CITES Appendix II, affording them international protection.

This position offers a fabulous opportunity to work shoulder-to-shoulder with people and organizations influencing international conservation policies.
