Student-based group travel programs featuring hands-on research in Costa Rica, Belize, Galapagos Islands, Mexico, and Yellowstone.

Ecology Project International is a nonprofit. 

Our mission is to inspire youth with nature and empower them with science, fostering tomorrow's leaders. We envision a diverse movement building communities that cherish and restore the ecosystems that sustain them.

APPLY FOR THE
Bitterroot Wildlife
INTERNSHIP

The Bitterroot Wildlife Internship (BWI) is an intensive, 4-week long internship focused on ecological education, conservation service, and hands-on research at the MPG Ranch in Lolo, Montana.

 

Open to high school students in Montana, Idaho, and Wyoming, the internship provides students the opportunity for one-on-one interaction with scientists that are conducting ongoing studies. 

"EPI helped me realize the direct impact of science. When working with scientists on my trips, we would always find ways to give back to the communities and made sure that they were always involved."
