Seal Pup Rehabilitation Internship

Island Wildlife Natural Care Centre is a registered not for profit 
organization located on Salt Spring Island off the west coast BC,   Canada.   We are one 
of only two marine mammal rehabilitation facilities in the country and 
operate under permits from the Department of Fisheries and Oceans, Environment 
Canada and the Ministry of Water, Land and Air.    IWNCC's focus is on the rescue 
and rehabilitation of orphaned, sick and injured Harbour Seal pups.

We have one immediate internship opening from mid-August until end October, 

This is a volunteer position with housing and a grocery allowance. Interns 
are accepted internationally and are responsible for their own transportation to

Safe rescue and handling of Harbour Seal pups; stabilizing critical patients 
and new arrivals; diet preparation through all stages of the rehabilitation 
process; gavage (tube) feeding, force feeding and hand feeding techniques; 
proper hygiene and isolation protocols to prevent the spread of disease; 
administration of oral medications; behavioural and medical observation and proper
