Volunteers would participate in monthly meetings and work on projects between the meetings, engaging in tasks such as internet or phone research, drafting of a broad array of content, editing content created by others, and brainstorming with staff and volunteers on campaigns and promotions. EPIC requests a minimum of four hours per month, with a maximum commitment of up to ten hours per month.

Protecting the Caribbean environment through research and community-based action.
Environmental Protection in the Caribbean (EPIC) is non-profit organization registered as a 501(c)(3) in the United States and is a registered foundation in St. Maarten. The organization was established in 2000 with the mission to protect the Caribbean environment through research and community-based action. This mission is achieved through three core programs: 1) Conservation of Wetlands and Coastal Habitats 2) Songbirds as Environmental Indicators 3) Keystone Cays: Conservation of Key Offshore Islands.
When approaching projects at new sites, the group’s methodology typically begins with scientific research, scoping meetings, and building partnerships. EPIC can then formulate a plan for conducting outreach programs and, ultimately, community-based actions to protect and/or restore habitats.
We'll work with your schedule.
