The Monterey Bay Aquarium's Sea Otter Program is seeking enthusiastic and motivated  individuals for two internship programs, 1) Research and 2) Animal Care for January-June 2019

Research Intern project  responsibilities include, but are not limited to, data collection in the field from shore and occasionally on a small boat using radio telemetry equipment and making visual observations with spotting scopes. Interns will record daily re-sights, movement patterns and forage observations, and activity budget data on marked individual wild sea otters.

Animal care intern project responsibilities include, but are not limited to, daily care and feeding of ill, injured and orphaned sea otters, maintenance and cleaning of animal tanks and enclosures, and computer data entry. Interns may also assist with rescues of live-stranded otters, tracking of released otters, administration of medication to sick otters, and managing otter in research projects.

Qualified applicants must be able to work in a team environment, as well as independently without direct supervision, and must have good communication skills.

All internship opportunities are Unpaid or STEM Internships (STEM may include funding provided through your educational institution). College credit may be available. Please refer to your College/University's student services division.
Early submission of applications is encouraged.
Deadline to apply is November 16, 2018.
