Position Description: The internship is sponsored by the Madrean Archipelago Wildlife Center (MAWC). MAWC was an instrumental organizational facilitator for the Border Wall Resistance Coalition composed of Sierra Club Borderlands, Center for Biological Diversity, Great Old Broads for Wilderness, Voices from the Border, Green Valley Samaritans, and other southeast Arizona artists and activists. This coalition was successful in stopping the illegal shipping container wall in the Coronado National Forest in winter 2022. The destruction occurred in the middle of pristine grasslands that support endangered jaguar, ocelot and pronghorn antelope habitats and critical migration corridors.
