Marine Mammal and Sea Turtle Research Internship

Program Description
The IMMS Research Internship Program is designed as a way for students
interested in a career in marine science to gain valuable research
experience in a real-world setting. Interns will participate with multiple
projects involving bottlenose dolphins, sea turtles and diamondback
terrapins. As an intern, you will be trained in all aspects of dolphin
photo-id research, sea turtle satellite tracking, and other current research
projects at IMMS. Interns will also participate in other operations at IMMS
including stranding response, education, and animal care. Our goal is to
give Interns a well-rounded experience in a variety of areas while providing
expert training and experience in marine science research. 

Principle Duties include: data entry, searching and cataloging journal
articles, learning all research protocols, cropping and sorting photo-id fin
images, learning to use photo-id programs such as Darwin (fin matching
software), and FinBase (Microsoft Access), boat based field research (21’
and 31’ boats), and learn how to use ArcGIS 

*	Secondary Duties involve: Assisting with animal care staff,
attending marine mammal necropsies, responding to marine mammal and sea
turtle strandings, and assisting with educational tours. 
*	Field days: Interns must be able to spend many hours on the water
and on shore in sometimes extreme seasonal conditions. Seasonal temperatures
range from over 100 °F in summer to 30 °F in winter. Field days typically
exceed eight hours and occur at least two or three times a week.
