Internships

Our unique internship program provides students with an opportunity to participate and receive training in a wide range of marine mammal and sea turtle experience. Participants work for school credit and volunteer their time within a specified area of interest. The internship provides hands-on and field experience for aspiring biology majors. Many of our interns have continued to volunteer following completion of their internship. Candidates have also demonstrated the benefits of their internship by successfully securing employment within the marine biology field or with their enrollment within advanced degree (MS or PhD) programs.
