About Para La Tierra:

Fundación Para La Tierra is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to the conservation of fragile habitats in Paraguay. Our vision is to change the course of Paraguayan environmentalism by inspiring people to appreciate the value of nature. We are working together with the Paraguayan government, local community members, national and international NGOs, and national and international volunteers and interns to protect Paraguay’s unique environment.

Para La Tierra achieves this mission through three primary programs: Scientific Research, Community Engagement, and Environmental Education.

About the Marketing and Communications Internship:

Para La Tierra is searching for enthusiastic interns to join our team in Paraguay for 2 to 6 months. You’ll learn how to effectively communicate about conservation and scientific projects to a broad national and international audience, and how to run recruitment and outreach initiatives. At the same time, you’ll be able to bring in your own ideas for marketing and recruitment campaigns, and can take on your own responsibilities.

The position includes tasks such as:

  • Attending PLT events and joining in on daily fieldwork to create high-quality content for social media and promotional material.

  • Creating and posting online content throughout social media accounts.

  • Developing and distributing promotional materials.

  • Assisting with production of quarterly newsletter.

  • Assisting in organising and implementing promotional events.

  • Contacting universities for potential partnerships and encouraging the establishment of partnership agreements with international institutions.

  • Presenting own innovative ideas.

This position is a great opportunity to gain hands-on experience within marketing, communications and recruitment along with an insight into the management of NGOs and grass-root organisations. Your main tasks are flexible and can be adapted to your interests and needs. You will work together with our Marketing and Communications Officer and receive ongoing support and guidance throughout your placement whilst learning and practising new skills.

Join our dynamic international team and contribute directly to the conservation of threatened habitats in Paraguay!


Daily activities will vary depending on your interests and the organisation's needs. You will always be supported and guided by our Marketing and Communications Officer. A typical day for a Marketing and Communications intern might look like this:

  • 06:00: Wake up and prepare yourself some coffee, tea, porridge or bread with the utensils provided by us.
  • 07:00: Head out to the field to help a research intern prepare stories for their #InternTakeover.
  • 11:00: Return to the house and write a compelling story about what's been going on in Pilar for our latest newsletter.
  • 12:30: Enjoy a delicious lunch, prepared by our amazing Paraguayan cooks Rocio & Delia.
  • 13:30: Time for siesta! Get some sun or take a nap in the cool dorm.
  • 14:30: Prepare some TikToks - Go through the photos and videos you captured in the previous week and come up with creative ideas how to make new, engaging content.
  • 16:00: Meet with our Marketing and Communications Officer to barinstorm ideas for an outreach strategy.
  • 19:00: It's dinner time! Have a look at what Rocio & Delia have prepared for us today.
  • 20:00: Enjoy you free time with the other interns: Head to the local plaza with frequent cultural events and local musicians, have a drink at one of the nearby bars or go stargazing at the beautiful riverside.


The quaint city of Pilar is the capital of Ñeembucú, tucked away in a quiet corner of Paraguay. The 'City of Birds' doesn't get its name from nothing, you will be able to spot a multitude of bird species when strolling through the streets. And it's also home to a myriad of other animals: The black-and-gold howler monkeys call the backyards their homes, toads roam the streets after sunrise, and you will just have to keep your eyes open to spot a neotropical otter at the river site.

But of course not only wildlife calls Pilar its home, the lovely Pilarenses are a laid-back and friendly community, that will warmly welcome you into their little paradise. The lively plaza of Pilar, only three blocks from PLT, offers the great opportunity to directly jump into Paraguayan culture: meeting point to most Pilarenses, you will be able to watch one of the many cultural performances that are organised regularly at night or join the locals in drinking a refreshing Tereré. Another two blocks from our home, the rivers Río Paraguay and the Arroyo Ñeembucú that encircle Pilar offer multiple free time activities: The newly built Costanera along the Río Paraguay invites you to watch breathtaking sunsets over Argentina or join the Pilarenses in their evening walks and runs. Along the Arroyo Ñeembucú you can find a variety of nice little beaches to soak up the sun and jump in the cool water, a definite must during the hot summer months! With the regular ferries across the Río Paraguay, Argentina is only a 30-min boat ride away and weekend trips to Resistencia or Corrientes a fun adventure. Regular buses to Asunción and Encarnacion offer opportunities to spend some time in bigger cities or to travel to one of the 7 Natural World Wonders, the Iguazú Falls at the intersection of Paraguay, Argentina and Brasil.
