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 internship opening remaining from August 1 until September 30, 
2009. During this period there will probably be 80 to 100 Harbour Seal pups 

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

Interns work directly under marine mammal rehabilitation specialists and 
can expect to learn and/or improve their skills in the following:

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 record keeping; general care of many other indigenous avian and 
terrestrial species.
