Environmental Policy Fellow

Gulf Restoration Network is seeking an environmental policy fellow in our New Orleans office. Protecting our valuable water resources is critical to ensuring a healthy and resilient Gulf Coast. GRN has many tools in our toolbox to clean waters. We watchdog Federal and State agencies to ensure that the Clean Water Act is followed. Nutrient pollution is a serious threat to the Gulf and we advocate for policy changes that limit nitrogen and phosphorous pollution. We fight destructive projects like the Pearl River dam in the Jackson, MS area that threatens downstream flows, coastal marshes and oyster beds.  The environmental policy fellow will work closely with our science and policy team to learn important aspects of the Clean Water Act, research wetland and water permits across the Gulf Coast and collaborate on technical letters to government agencies.
