Internships are unpaid and interns are responsible for their own food, housing and transportation. Summer internships are available in animal training and in education. Summer internships run from the middle of May until the middle of August.
Education internships include public speaking, classroom presentations, and program building. Education interns learn much about the field of marine mammal biology and sharing this information with others to help animals and their environment. Applicants for this internship must major in education, marine biology or a related field.
Animal training interns must major in animal science, psychology, biology, zoology or a related field. Interns will be exposed to all aspects of the daily care and training of dolphins with an emphasis on basic tasks such as food preparation, daily cleaning/facility maintenance and interacting with the public.
To apply for an internship, students must submit an online application and include a cover letter, resume and two letters of recommendation.
