Opportunites of a lifetime.

Remote locations across New Zealand and Antarctica

November 2021 - June 2022

New Zealanders (aged 18 - 25)



Applications are now closed for the 2021/22 BLAKE Ambassador Programme 

Thank you to everyone who applied for this year’s BLAKE Ambassador programme.

Through BLAKE’s partnerships with NIWA, the Department of Conservation (DOC), Antarctica New Zealand and GNS Science, 13 young New Zealanders will be given the opportunity to take part in important science and conservation projects.

Placed in remote locations around New Zealand and in Antarctica, the BLAKE Ambassadors programme offers unique opportunities to young people to contribute to important projects while advancing their career opportunities.

Each programme is designed to both advance BLAKE Ambassadors’ understanding of some of the big questions and challenges facing the environment and develop their leadership capability to drive positive change and inspire other New Zealanders.

More information about this year’s programmes is available on the programme tiles below or email the Programme Manager, Jacob Anderson at [email protected].

Applications are now closed. Applicants will be notified if they are successful or not once the selection process has taken place.
