PennPIRG is a consumer group that stands up to powerful special interests on behalf of the public for our health and well-being. With a strong network of researchers, advocates, and organizers, we are able to take on issues such as political corruption, product safety, consumer protection, and public health.

This summer, we are running an office in Philadelphia, PA to build support for PennPIRG’s Stop the Overuse of Antibiotics Campaign.

The overuse of antibiotics can breed resistant bacteria that would make illnesses such as pneumonia and post-surgery infections un-treatable. Public health officials, such as the CDC, have warned that our antibiotics will stop working if we overuse them.

However, 70% of our antibiotics are being used by factory farmers rather than people with infections. For our antibiotics to remain effective, factory farms need to stop overusing our lifesaving medicine.

Last year, we helped convince McDonald’s and Subway to agree to stop serving chicken and other meats that have been raised on routine antibiotics. Now we are calling on KFC, the largest fried chicken restaurant in the world, to follow suit. If we keep up the pressure, we know that this will create an industry-wide shift, and slow the rise of antibiotic resistant disease.

This is your chance to spend your summer and/or school year working for a great cause, while gaining valuable campaign leadership experience.

We have both part-time and full-time positions available for the rest of the summer and the upcoming school year. These positions offer salaries ranging from $9 to $14 per hour.

Fill out the form below to set up an interview and hear more about our available positions.

Marine mammal observer certification

Hi,
 
I am holding a training course in Boston which provides Protected Species Observer (also known as Marine Mammal Observer) certification on Sept 24-25.  I was wondering if some students or faculty/staff would be interested in obtaining this professional certification this fall.  This training is approved by the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management and the Bureau of Safety & Environmental Enforcement to provide Protected Species Observer certification for the Gulf of Mexico, and is often accepted in various other industries and regions where mitigation for protected species is needed.  PSOs monitor for marine mammals and sea turtles, and advise on the measures required to reduce impacts to the animals worldwide.  This course also includes a field component (vessel trip) to complement classroom instruction, allowing students to acquire experience identifying the animals at sea.
 
The course examines the regulations for reducing seismic survey impacts to marine mammals and sea turtles, and how to visually locate and identify the animals. I am offering this course at a discounted rate of $725 for members of non-profit organizations, students and recent graduates (normal cost $800).  Lunch is provided each day, along with various identification guides, regulatory documents, advice on applying to PSO positions, and a three-hour whale watch trip to the Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary, one of the top whale-watching destinations in the world.  Please find the flyer for the course in the attached file. 
 
Additional information may be found on the MPSC website at http://www.protectedspeciesobservers.com/, by contacting me at ABostwick@PSOCertifications.com, by phone at 832-523-2402.
 
Thank you,

Summer jobs

Summer Jobs for the Environment!

My name is Marc, Rutgers alumni May 2015, and this summer I will be one of the directors in the New Brunswick office helping to run campaigns for Environment New Jersey.

Environment New Jersey is hiring students to work on our campaigns this summer in New Jersey. We're looking for folks that are hardworking, good communicators, and committed to making positive change.

This summer our top campaign is saving the bees! To sign up to learn more click here.

This has been a problem for over a decade, but now bee keepers are reporting losing on average a third of bee populations each year. This is a huge environmental and economic issue, because bees pollinate everything from strawberries to coffee, and even the food that dairy animals eat which give us ice cream and cheese.

One cause of this issue is that bees have increasingly exposed to a class of insecticides called neonicotinoids, which are powerful neurotoxins. However, chemical companies like Syngenta are working to convince the EPA to raise the allowable limit of one of their bee-killing pesticides by more than 400 times.

That's why we are working to push Obama’s Environmental Protection Agency to speed up the testing on neonics, and to eventually ban the use of these toxins. But to do that, we need to demonstrate the public's support. To win this campaign, we are hiring folks to get out into communities, and build support for this issue based out of our New Brunswick office. Over the course of the summer you can expect to make between $4,000-$6,000 and make $10-$15/HR. It's a great way to build your resume, like an internship, but you get paid.
