2019 WLI intern Adil Boulahia

Every year WWT supports a capacity-building internship at Slimbridge, UK. From July 2019, the WLI intern is Adil Boulahia.

“The chance to learn”

Originally from a beautiful country in North Africa called Morocco. I have always been a fan of nature and its wonders. As a lawyer by training, I wanted to make an academic transition to a field that would be more meaningful to me.

In 2016 I had the merit of obtaining a Master’s degree in Environmental and Sustainable Development Law at Mohamed V University in Rabat. It was a real springboard.

Through this master’s degree, I was able to deepen my knowledge in a field that fascinated me so much.

Thus, I had the opportunity to participate in several events related to nature and sustainable development, I quote among others Sustainable Development Goals organized by the United Nations National Program. UNDP.

After graduating successfully in 2016, I joined the professional sector through GREPOM/BirdLife Morocco, which offered me a two-month internship before hiring me as a Communication Officer. This experience was very rich in training, challenges and professional success.

Today, I am very honoured to be part of this wonderful team of Wetlands Link International. WLI, which I would like to thank deeply for their trust, hoping to generate results from what I learn and undertake. It is an exciting daily challenge for me and the people I work with.
