Opportunites of a lifetime.

Remote locations across New Zealand

November 2020 - March 2021

New Zealanders (aged 18 - 25)



Applications for the 2020 BLAKE Ambassadors programme are now closed. 

Each year BLAKE offers incredible environmental leadership opportunities for 18 – 25-year olds to work in the field with leading scientists, conservationists, engineers and conservators on important projects and research.

Through BLAKE’s partnerships with NIWA, the Department of Conservation (DOC) and GNS Science, this year we are offering nine positions to young New Zealanders to take part in the 2020 BLAKE Ambassadors Programme.

Placed in remote locations around New Zealand, 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.
