Each year Conservation Forces hires summer clerks as interns through programs at local universities. This summer we have an opportunity to step up that program, but we need funding. We have an opportunity to employ a particularly desirable law student for a four-month term. Conservation Force needs help with its summer intern program.
That law student is Jared Rann, son of Jeff Rann, the renowned professional hunter. Jared was born a US citizen, but he grew up in Botswana’s Okavango and was schooled in South Africa. He is aware and concerned with the future role of sustainable hunting in Africa and is intimately familiar with the current situation in Botswana, where the government is closing hunting in most, if not ultimately all, Botswana concessions.
He is a stakeholder in the future of hunting, our wildlife resources and our way of life. He can be a great asset to Conservation Force, and the experience can provide a solid foundation for a lifetime of service to the hunting community. We need him, and there is great potential for the whole community.
The estimated cost for his participation in the four-month program is $12,000. The tax deductible donations should be earmarked for “Conservation Force Intern Program – 2012,” payable to Conservation Force at PO Box 278, Metairie, LA 70004-0278, USA. Please call (504-837-1233) if you have questions.
