Blue Ocean Society for Marine Conservation is accepting applications for
Summer 2017 internship positions.  

 

Blue Ocean Society for Marine Conservation is a nonprofit organization based
in Portsmouth, NH, USA with a mission to protect marine life in the Gulf of
Maine through research, education and inspiring action. We achieve our goals
primarily through our core programs which involve studying whales from
commercial whale watch boats, collecting data on debris found during beach
cleanups and offshore, and interacting with thousands of people each year
during programs and events.

 

Blue Ocean Society's Internship Program is structured and designed to
provide undergraduates and recent post-grads with hands-on experience in the
field of whale research, education and marine conservation.  Interns will be
directly involved in a variety of programs, including contributing to our
long-term studies of several wild cetacean species (humpback, fin, minke
whales, etc.) in the Gulf of Maine while working aboard commercial whale
watching vessels departing from NH and northern MA.  Interns will also
assist with education through our outreach programs, beach cleanups and at
our Blue Ocean Discovery Center in Hampton Beach, NH.

.         Collect detailed data (environmental and behavioral) on local
marine species and marine debris

.         Educate visitors at our Blue Ocean Discovery Center

.         Enter data 

.         Attend weekly meetings and lectures

.         Complete weekly reading assignments

and the ability to work with limited supervision

unpaid position. Interns are responsible for their own housing and
transportation.  Those who can work full-time hours for at least 10 weeks
will be given preference.
