New England Primate Conservancy

Education heart

New England Primate Conservancy is a wildlife conservation and animal protection organization that makes its greatest impact through education. We are committed to leaving a legacy of hope and tools to create a better tomorrow for all the Earth's citizens. To that end, we offer fun learning activities, engaging lesson plans, stories, facts, presentations, videos, and a wealth of resources...because education is the heart of animal protection.

With the advent of the past year’s at-home and hybrid learning environments as a result of COVID-19, we've ramped up development of educational content that makes it easier for teachers to teach, for students to learn, and for parents to adapt to their unwitting and unfamiliar roles as academic coaches. Even as children and teachers head back to the classroom in the coming months, or if they're already back, innovative lessons and activities facilitate navigation through what could still be an environment in transition.

As we further expand the reach of these programs, we need someone with the social media savvy, finesse, and willingness to dig into social media to find the teachers and organizations that can most benefit from these programs and engage more teachers and students with our educational content. We are currently active on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, and YouTube, and are open to other platforms with your expertise.

The immediate goals are to:

  • Connect NEPC’s educational content with teachers.
  • Connect NEPC’s education content with K-12 educational forums and groups.
  • Connect NEPC’s educational content with environmental education organizations that target grades K-12, with the possibility of collaborations.

This is a remote volunteer position that can be accomplished from your home, with e-mail, phone, or Zoom correspondence with the Education Program Director and/or the Education Team.

Minimum age 28.
10-20 hours per month. We'll work with your schedule. More time may be required during the program launches. Less other times.

Mission Statement

New England Primate Conservancy is committed to leaving a legacy of hope and tools to create a better tomorrow for all of the Earth's citizens.

Description

Did you know that two thirds of all primate species and subspecies are endangered? All nonhuman primates are threatened by habitat loss caused by human activities. But there is hope. Since the problems are caused by human activity, they are preventable, repairable, and reversible. We can each take small steps in our daily lives, in our daily choices, to create change for the better.

In addition to raising awareness about our environmental impact, humane education strives to develop empathy and tolerance toward all creatures, which facilitates the leap to empathy and tolerance for differences in people. Over 30 years of studies confirm the direct correlation between abuse and neglect of animals and violence against people. By the same token, compassion for our fellow animals can be an indicator of our compassion for each other. When we protect and advocate for our fellow animals, we are part of a much larger solution. Join us. Contribute to the solution.
