  2. Dear Ladies and Gentleman,

    I am an Bachelor -Student of Geography at the Humboldt-University of Berlin. In this month I am completing my fith semester and I´m getting to the point of thinking about the subject of my bachelor thesis. As it is one of our major concerns, I am very interseted in the topic of biodiversity and biodiversity loss.

    Out of this reason I would like to get the possebility of an internship in a program of your organisation, on which I could possibly base my thesis on. As I didnt find one on your website, could you tell me if there is a official adress I can send my application to?

    Best regards,
    Alexandra Hartmann
