The Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) is a U.S. and international environmental action organization. We use law, science, and the support of 3 million members and online activists to protect the planet's wildlife and wild places and to ensure a safe and healthy environment for all living things. NRDC was founded in 1970 and our staff has helped write some of America's bedrock environmental laws, including the Clean Water Act, and many implementing regulations. Our cases enforcing and defending federal and state environmental laws have played a major role shaping current environmental policy throughout the country. Our staff of more than 600 lawyers, scientists, economists, policy and communications experts, and others, work out of offices in New York, Washington, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Bozeman, and Beijing.
NRDC is seeking an experienced attorney or policy advocate for our Alaska Project, working in NRDC’s office in Washington, DC or San Francisco with periodic travel to Alaska and elsewhere, providing highly effective advocacy, collaboration, and leadership in challenging, high stakes conservation campaigns across a spectrum of forums, focusing principally on federal public lands and waters in Alaska.
