Opportunites of a lifetime.

Remote locations across New Zealand and Antarctica

November 2021 - June 2022

New Zealanders (aged 18 - 25)



Applications are OPEN for the 2021/22 BLAKE Ambassador Programme 

This year, we’re opening up 13 positions for young New Zealanders from all over Aotearoa to take part in the 2021/2022 BLAKE Ambassador programme.

Through BLAKE’s partnerships with NIWA, the Department of Conservation (DOC), Antarctica New Zealand and GNS Science, selected young leaders 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.

Applications close Sunday 18 July 2021.
