Planet Rehab is seeking a Public Relations Intern to help our mission to grow by publicizing events projects and coordinating opportunities for brand recognition as well as developing fundraising opportunities.
About the Organization:
Planet Rehab is an environmental nonprofit with the mission of protecting the environment by nurturing the relationship between humanity and nature. In 2019 Planet Rehab relocated to Panama to work directly with Reforestation and Protecting Species vulnerable to Extinction. Planet Rehab has three main goals: environmental education, habitat protection, and species propagation.
According to the United Nations, we are causing the biggest mass extinction in the last 65 million years, resulting in the extinction of approximately 150-200 species each day! An important aspect of our plan to combat species extinction is our Just One Tree initiative in which we are planting the Endangered Almendro Tree across Central America as it is home to THOUSANDS of endangered species such as the Great Green Macaw.
