The internship program reflects our mission, "to inspire people to care for and protect our ocean planet through education, research and exploration."  Internships are available for the fall, spring and summer.

Application deadlines are as follows:
Spring internships (Jan-May): September 30
Summer internships (May-Aug): January 31

Essential Responsibilities
Typical husbandry internship duties include the following:

Please note that internship duties vary depending on the department and the above list may not apply in all areas. Interns may take responsibility for additional duties once they have demonstrated competence.

Requested Requirements
The applicant must be enrolled in or recently graduated from college in order to participate. Internships are open to both undergraduate and graduate students. Students can receive academic credit from their school for the internship, but it is the student's responsibility to arrange for the credit.
All internships are unpaid. Husbandry internships are full-semester commitments with a minimum of 38.75 hours per week. Most interns work 40 hours within five days per week.
Most internships follow the college year (Spring, Summer and Fall semesters). Dates of the program may be adjusted to fit other school calendars or programs.
