Applications for the 2022/2023 BLAKE Ambassador Programme closed in August

Through BLAKE’s partnerships with NIWA, the Department of Conservation (DOC), Antarctica New Zealand and GNS Science, 11 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 Jacob Anderson at [email protected] or call the BLAKE office on 09 307 8875.
