Coastal Marine Education and Research Academy (CMERA)

This summer you can be a part of our research team as a crew member aboard one of our research boats, gaining hands-on marine field research experience, and handling sharks and stingrays in Florida.

This experience will advance your interest in natural science, provide you valuable experience for your resume, enable you to be eligible to receive credit hours (see below), and provide the enjoyable opportunity to interact with fellow students from all over the country!  

What:  All participating students will be conducting field research on sharks and rays in the Clearwater, FL area in an ongoing project focusing on a species survey, population stability, and population dynamics.  All students will work on our boats in the Gulf of Mexico, setting equipment to catch sharks and rays,retrieving the equipment, handling the animals, collecting pertinent data from the animals, collecting environmental data, tagging the animals, and releasing the animals back into their natural habitat.  Students will also attend daily lectures (1 - 2 hours) on our local ecosystems and the animals that live in those ecosystems.  Students will then receive field instruction as they experience our local and unique ecosystems.  Snorkeling and diving are also available options to further experience our underwater world.

Why choose CMERA:  CMERA is a unique program that focuses on field research.  In our program, Monday - Friday, 6 - 8 hours are spent in the field on one of our boats each day with an additional 1 - 2 hours in the classroom each day.  This is an incredibly hands-on program where students conduct all portions of the research project and handle the animals.  Students get to experience wild animals in their natural habitat, which is very different from observing captive animals or conducting research in a lab.

When:  Our summer courses begin in 1 week periods (Sunday - Saturday) on May 3 and our final week ends on August 29.  Students may attend 1 week, 2 weeks, 3 weeks, or 4 weeks depending on how many credit hours or how much field experience they would like to receive.  There are financial incentives for attending 3 or 4 weeks.  We also have an early enrollment discount, which ends December 31, 2014, and regular enrollment ends March 31, 2015.

Where:  All of our research is conducted in the Gulf of Mexico in Clearwater, Florida and the surrounding areas.

Who:  Students must be 18 years of age or older.  Incoming freshman, who have not yet taken college courses, and college graduates are both welcome.  This experience is valuable for students at various levels.  For students interested in the natural sciences, but who have not had much, if any, experience in the natural sciences, this experience may help determine if this truly is the appropriate course of study.  Students who are confident in their natural science discipline, will gain incredibly valuable job training.  Students who are contemplating a graduate degree, will get a taste of what graduate level research is, the difficulties of research, and perhaps ideas for their graduate thesis.

Course credit:  For students currently enrolled in college courses, we urge you to speak with your academic advisor or department chair about receiving credit for our courses.  Most schools consider this as independent research, directed study, field research, or elective credits and some schools use our program for a Capstone project.  This experience is very valuable for future internships or jobs that you will apply for even if you are unable to receive course credit.

How:  Go to www.cmera.net for more information and to apply for this amazing opportunity!!  Space is limited!  

We will provide email addresses, by request, of previous participants, if you would like to speak to a previous student about their experience with us.
Please feel free to contact us via email at info@coastalmera.com or call us at (727)437-8589 if we can assist you in any way.

CALL FOR APPLICATIONS: REU SITE IN ETHIOPIA

Application deadline: January 30, 2015.

We are now accepting applications for a NSF Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program based at Colby College and South Gondar, Ethiopia. This REU will provide eight American undergraduate students from diverse academic backgrounds an opportunity to conduct path-breaking interdisciplinary research on the ecological, economic and cultural roles of church forests. Church forests are patches of Afromontane forest surrounding Ethiopian Orthodox churches. Preserved for centuries by church leaders and communities as religious sanctuaries, church forests are, in many parts of Ethiopia, the only indigenous forests left.

Under the eight-week summer REU program students will receive training at Colby College in social survey research, ecological field methods, spatial analysis using Geographic Information Systems (GIS), and written and oral communication. They will then travel to South Gondar, Ethiopia to conduct hands-on fieldwork with mentors from Colby College, the California Academy of Sciences, and local academic and government institutions.

Completed applications including 2 letters of recommendation are due by January 30th. The 2015 Summer REU Site programs will run from June 29th – August 19th (approximate). All participants must be enrolled at a U.S. college or university at the time of the program (seniors graduating in Spring 2015 are not eligible).

Details about the project and application instructions can be found at: http://www.colby.edu/reu-in-ethiopia/

Community Engagement Internship

BeCause Water is seeking individuals who can further build our community of water sustainability changemakers.  

For years, the bottled water industry has invested in persuading the public to believe that their product is healthier than tap water and somehow “green.” A consistent annual increase in bottled water consumption shows that there remains a lack of awareness for the underlying importance of water sustainability along with insufficient incentives for its alternative solutions.

The two primary reasons why people drink bottled water are: the fear of tap water, and substitution for sugary beverages. The former is an awareness issue, while the latter is a distribution issue.

BeCause Water is changing the model in which water is consumed and perceived by increasing awareness and access to local, clean drinking water. Our key performance indicators include the saved water, emissions, oil, and monetary spending associated with reducing bottled water consumption.

Fast facts for the Middlebury School of the Environment<http://www.middlebury.edu/environment>

·         Six-week, integrated program

·         June 19 to July 31, 2015

·         Middlebury College, Vermont

·         Nine semester-hour credits (3 courses)

·         Need-based grants available<http://www.middlebury.edu/environment/financial_aid>

·         Both Introductory and Advanced Tracks of study

During our inaugural session, we offered an intermediate/advanced curriculum of courses<http://www.middlebury.edu/environment/curriculum> as well as workshops with environmental and leadership practitioners<http://www.middlebury.edu/environment/faculty> such as Gus Speth, Bill McKibben, Helen Riess, Alden Woodrow, Mary Hurlie, Kenny Williams, and Jack Byrne.

Specific courses in this track included two core courses – Sustainability Practicum and Understanding Place: Lake Champlain – and a choice of one of two electives: Environmentalism and the Poor, and International Environmental Negotiation.

For summer 2015, we are adding a second track of study, an introductory track<http://www.middlebury.edu/environment/curriculum> for students without prior college-level environmental coursework.  Students will enroll in two core courses – Introduction to Environmental Analysis and Systems Thinking Practicum – as well as an elective.

I’m happy to talk to anyone regarding the curriculum. Feel free to write to me directly – or have your interested students write to me – with any questions (trombulak@middlebury.edu).

Also, just as a related heads up, I will shortly be posting announcements for faculty positions in the School.  I will be recruiting four faculty for the coming summer in fields from across the spectrum of environmental studies, including natural science, social science, humanities, and the arts. If this kind of summer teaching opportunity may be of interest to you, keep an eye open for future announcements about these openings.

Looking for a job that makes a difference? U.S.PIRG is hiring college seniors to work as Campus Organizers on college campuses across the country. On issue after issue, we see powerful interests corrupting the democratic process, twisting public policy to serve their own ends. U.S. PIRG takes action by documenting the problems, finding practical solutions, informing the public and making the case for change directly to decision-makers. We work on fighting climate change, restoring democracy, and protecting public health. Apply online atwww.uspirg.org/jobs or email wellington@masspirgstudents.org for more details.




Climate change looms as the most pressing issue of our generation. Fracking has contaminated drinking water and made people sick across the country. Our rivers, lakes, and most treasured natural areas are vulnerable to mining, drilling and other harms.

There’s no lack of solutions to solve these challenges; there’s a lack of political will. That’s why Environment America is running grassroots campaigns to bring people together to convince our leaders to stop pandering to big polluters and climate deniers, and start getting behind the solutions. We are hiring interns for the 2015 semester to work.

To win positive change for the environment, you need a smart strategy and effective tactics. But most of all, you need grit and determination – because that’s what it takes to mobilize enough public support to win.

You’ll help craft and implement social media campaigns, generate traditional earned media through opinion writing, recruit community leaders to join our campaigns, collect petitions and other grassroots support, and research and write fact sheets and other materials for decision makers and opinion leaders.

What do interns with Environment Massachusetts do? You’ll educate and engage more people on the most critical environmental issues of our time. You’ll get our issues into the media, build coalitions, organize events and lobby decision-makers. Ultimately, you’ll help us build the kind of public support it takes to win.

In Massachusetts, we’re building a clean and renewable future powered by the sun:  We could meet all of America’s energy needs by capturing just a sliver of the virtually limitless and pollution-free energy of the sun. And we're making a lot of progress: In Massachusetts, solar energy has grown more than 100-fold since 2008.

But we’re still getting most of our electricity from dirty sources like coal and gas, and the power of fossil fuel interests threatens to stop solar in its tracks. This fall, we’re ramping up our work to build support for a national goal of getting 10% of our electricity from the sun by 2030 — and in Massachusetts, we’ll push the envelope by mobilizing public support and building a powerful coalition of businesses and elected officials behind ambitious clean energy goals.
