Katie Fensome – 2015 Sustainability Intern at Bruno Manser Fonds, Basel, Switzerland
"I've been working for 3 months as a GIS and remote sensing intern for the Bruno Manser Fonds, a Swiss NGO which supports the indigenous Penan of Malaysian Borneo to protect and sustainably manage their forests. My role was to map logging incursions into indigenous territories which will become part of community atlases for the Penan. I had regular meetings with my immediate boss who was supportive and enthusiastic, and made me feel a valued part of the team. "
Katie now works as Project Officer for the Bruno Manser Fonds in Basel, Switzerland
