Audubon South Carolina's WINGS Internship and Seasonal Staff Program

Preparing the Next Generation of Conservation Leaders

Audubon South Carolina’s WINGS internship and seasonal staff program offers students and early career professionals an opportunity to explore conservation career options, gain valuable experience, and develop skills and knowledge to enrich their career pathways. Individuals will learn from managers and mentors who are eager to share their expertise, passion and insight, while being afforded the opportunity to enhance their resumes.

Internships and seasonal staff positions are offered throughout the year and include opportunities in Conservation Education, Public Policy, Coastal Bird Conservation, Land Stewardship, Communications, Cultural Heritage, and Bird Science. All positions are paid and include flexible start dates with part-time and full-time positions available.

Positions may be based at our Audubon Center and Sanctuary at Francis Beidler Forest in Harleyville, our Silver Bluff Audubon Sanctuary in Jackson, at our offices in Charleston or Columbia, or in local communities and in the field.
