Are you a talented and seasoned writer? Are you passionate about wildlife conservation? Do you love digging into wildlife facts and crafting stories about what you've learned? If so, this volunteer opportunity may be for you!

At NEPC, we strive to make the complex science behind environmental protection, animal protection, and wildlife conservation easy to understand so that the average person can assess, consider, and modify their own impact on the natural world. We pore through science-based publications and "translate" them into language that everyone can enjoy. New England Primate Conservancy is committed to leaving a legacy of hope and tools to build a better tomorrow for all the Earth's citizens.

We are seeking talented writers for our renowned Primate Species Profiles series, the backbone of our education programs. We find our Primate Species Profiles cited widely throughout the internet by conservation sites, wiki sites, zoos, bloggers, news agencies, magazines, other animal protection and conservation organizations, and more. In addition-and very importantly-they are used by students for their school projects.

Nowhere else can one find so many primate species so thoroughly yet concisely profiled in easy-to-understand, non-scientific, non-academic language that everyone can comprehend and enjoy. This is what makes what we provide so accessible and so popular. Creative writing and thorough factual research are required.

This volunteer position can be accomplished from your home, with email, Zoom, and phone correspondence with the Education Team.

If you are a mature writer with a passion for conservation and wildlife protection, this opportunity may be for you.

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 almost three-quarters of all primate species are threatened? 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.
