Wageningen, 21 November 2008 - Renske den Exter from The Netherlands, has joined the WOW Project Coordination Unit (PCU) in Wageningen for a five month internship. Renske is a third year environmenal science student from the Van Hall-Larenstein Institute and her internship at the WOW PCU will be her second practical on-the-job training required by her university curriculum.
"I actually learned about the Wings Over Wetlands (WOW) Project from one of my University teachers and because of the international dimension and ambitious goals of the project I took an immediate interest to this initiative" Renske said in her interview.
In the coming months, Renske will be working closely with the WOW PCU and the communications team to implement the project's communication strategy and assist in the overall management of the project. In addition, she will be given her own independent project to concentrate on until the end of her internship in April 2009.
"I look forward to working closely with the PCU and WOW communications team, as well as contribute to the important work this project is contributing to in Africa and Eurasia over the coming months. For me, helping with such an ambitious project feels like a real challenge!" she added.
Although she only started her internship one week ago, she has already been thrown into the action with one of her immediate tasks being to help the team prepare for the planned WOW Side Event which is scheduled to take place on Thursday, 4 December 2008 in the margins of the 9th Conference of the Parties to the Convention on Migratory Species (CMS COP9, 1-5 December 2008) in Rome, Italy.
