Northcoast Marine Mammal Center Spring Internship
The Northcoast Marine Mammal Center is seeking applicants for a last minute opening working with stranded Marine Mammals this spring. The spring internship is the most sought after term as it is when we rescue new born Pacific Harbor Seal pups. The spring internship term is March through June 2017. There may be some flexibility on the start date, please indicate your desired start date in the cover letter. Internships are a minimum of 3 months. The position is unpaid and no housing is provided. Applicants will live and work in Crescent City, CA.
Program Description:
The Northcoast Marne Mammal Center is an exciting opportunity for individuals who are interested in increasing their experience and knowledge of marine mammal behavior.  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, medicine administration, pen cleaning and other animal husbandry duties as needed) for on-site patients. The fall internship will focus mostly on administrative, event planning and fundraising responsibilities with less than 20% animal care.
Intern Responsibilities & Qualifications:
The internship is open to all applicants 21 years of age or older, with a devoted interest in marine biology, zoology, general biology, policy or a related field. Interns must be able to work for a minimum of 3 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. Interns must also have transportation as they are required to be on call for rescues.  Applicants should demonstrate excellent communication skills and have practical computer knowledge.
Interested applicants are encouraged to submit a résumé that includes the names of three references, and a cover letter detailing interests, experience, housing accommodations, start date and availability.  Please forward all application materials electronically to  volunteer at northcoastmmc.org<mailto:volunteer at northcoastmmc.org>
