Still figuring out summer plans?  It's not too late to apply!  Applications are being accepted until March 1.


The University of New England's Marine Animal Rehabilitation Center is currently accepting applications for the Marine Animal Rehabilitation Internship Program. We are looking for highly motivated, dynamic candidates who will work closely in a team setting with staff and volunteers to assist with all aspects of veterinary care and husbandry of sick and injured seals, cetaceans and/or sea turtles. Other responsibilities include (but are not limited to): Daily care of animals, transport of live/dead marine animals, water quality testing, maintenance of daily food and medical records, necropsy, education/docent tours and data-entry. Additional duties and projects may be assigned by staff.

These positions are typically unpaid and interns are required to find their own housing and transportation. Interns should expect to be scheduled to cover a variety of weekday shifts, nights, weekends and holidays. The ideal candidate should be mature and motivated, and possess a strong work ethic and excellent observational and communication skills.

The deadline for Summer Applications is March 1, 2011.  Interested applicants can find all information and application materials at http://www.une.edu/research/msc/marc/internship.cfm 

Applications and questions can be submitted to MARCinfo at une.edu c/o Kristen Patchett, Volunteer Supervisor/Internship Coordinator.
