Last Minute 2018 Spring Internship Open

Spring Term is March 1st - June 7th, however, we can be flexible on the start date due to the short lead time.
Summer Term is June 1st -Sept 30th. The deadline for summer interships is April 7, 2018
Notes: The spring term is the busiest and most "hands-on" season at NMMC as this is when we see many new born Pacific Harbor Seal pups.

We offer flexible end dates and extensions for excellent candidates. Time off must be arranged in advance. Program Description:

Interns will also assist with events, fundraising and other administrative duties.
