The Northcoast Marine Mammal Center is seeking applicants for internships working with stranded marine mammals. These positions are unpaid and no housing is provided. Internships dates are flexible, although March through May would be ideal. We are looking to fill this position as soon as possible. Applicants will be living and working in Crescent City, Ca.

Program description:
The NMMC is an exciting opportunity for individuals who are interested in increasing their experience and knowledge of marine mammals. Interns will have the opportunity to participate in marine mammal rescues, releases and other field responses as available. In addition, interns will be required to assist in other departments and with animal care duties(intake duties, feed preparations, medical charting, administration of medications, pen cleaning and other animal husbandry duties as needed) for onsite patients. This is our busiest season of the year. Spring is Pacific harbor seal  pupping season and Northern elephant seal weaner season, so in addition to general animal care duties, there will be a lot of tube feeding and fish schooling involved.

Intern responsibilities and Qualifications:
This internship is open to all applicants 21 years of age and older, with a devoted interest in marine biology, zoology, general biology, or a related field. Interns should be able to work for a minimum of 2 months, 5 days a week, at least 40 hours per week. Work schedule must be flexible and will include weekends and holidays. This is an unpaid position and all interns are responsible for obtaining housing and transportation. Applicants should demonstrate excellent communication skills and have practical computer knowledge.

Interested applicants are encouraged to submit a resume that includes the names of three references and a cover letter detailing interests, experience, start date and availability. Please forward all application materials electronically to volunteer at northcoastmmc.org<mailto:volunteer at northcoastmmc.org>
