We need volunteer interns to work with us in the field during the month of
June off Key West, Florida. Work will involve (after training) help
collecting data on wild bottlenose dolphins, help with data entry and
analysis, and clean up maintenance of vessels/vehicles. During the
internship, education will be provided on marine mammal biology and
behavior in addition to seamanship skills and general field ecology (some
through evening lectures, some through hands on training).
The research project involves investigation of a unique feeding behavior

The position is voluntary. Interns are responsible for travel, food and
lodging costs. TDRF locates a house where interns stay for the duration
with researchers. Interns can opt to stay for the duration (one month) or
shorter. We prefer a minimum of two weeks.
