Program Description - The California Wildlife Center is a non-profit organization dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and release of injured, orphaned and sick native wildlife.  CWC fulfills this mission through marine mammal rescue and rehabilitation, and treatment of avian and terrestrial wildlife in our rehabilitation hospital.   This internship will provide an exciting and challenging educational experience in the marine mammal field, while also allowing for additional hands-on experience with other native California wildlife.  The interns will be working closely with the Marine Mammal program staff in all aspects of stranding response and rehabilitation, including logistics, assessment, capture/restraint, transportation, husbandry, and public relations.   In addition, interns will provide support to CWC Hospital staff in animal husbandry tasks for avian and terrestrial wildlife.

Internship Session Information - There are four internship sessions available each year.  Each session is eight weeks long and has two positions available.  Session I runs from the beginning of January to the end of February.  Session II runs from mid-February to mid-April.  Session III runs from the beginning of April to the end of May.  Session IV runs from mid-May to mid-July.  Time commitment 40-hours per week.

Intern Qualifications - The internship is open to all applicants at least 18 years of age or older. Undergraduate students and non-students alike are encouraged to apply.  If the intern intends to receive academic credit, the intern will be responsible for making all arrangements with their educational institutions. Due to the unpredictable nature of marine mammal stranding response, interns may sometimes be required to work beyond their normal scheduled hours.   Interns must be able and willing to work flexible hours including weekends and holidays.  Interns will be required to have good physical strength and the ability to lift/carry 50 lbs. Interns need to have the ability to multitask and work in a fast paced environment.  Animal care and/or marine mammal experience is a plus but not required.  Applicant must demonstrate proof of negative TB test within the past year and a current tetanus vaccination.
