Volunteer Positions, The Osprey, Nature Newfoundland and Labrador


Nature Newfoundland and Labrador is looking for dynamic and committed individuals, awed by the rugged natural beauty of our province, to help with various aspects of The Osprey, the Nature journal of Newfoundland and Labrador. These volunteer positions allow both literary expression and interaction with leading naturalists from our province.


The Osprey is a published four times per year. It is distributed both electronically and in hard copy to a readership that spans Canada, the US, and Europe, and is digitally archived at Memorial University. The journal publishes articles ranging from seasonal bird reports and discussions of important undertakings in the province with the potential to impact the environment, to nature photography and poetry.


Editorial Team: Editorial team members are responsible for: compiling and reviewing articles for publication and laying them out. Editing, word processing, and excellent communication skills are required. Experience in basic graphic design and desktop publishing would be an asset!


Contributors: Contributors are sought to submit articles on a range of environmental and nature topics.


Photographers: Photographers contribute stock and feature photos to accompany articles in the Osprey. All photos will be attributed to the photographer.


Artists / Graphic artists: Artists will assist with producing graphics and infographics to support Osprey articles. Graphic artists will also help design and develop Nature NL advertisements for various programming (indoor and outdoor programs, Nature Nook, etc).


Social Media Coordinator(s):  The social media coordinators will moderate the social media outlets for Nature NL and be responsible in developing a social media strategy that coincides with the organization’s communications plan.
