Seal Rescue Ireland is accepting applications for our exciting internship

Seal Rescue Ireland (SRI) is a charity organisation which operates a busy
marine animal rescue and rehabilitation centre located in Courtown, Co.
Wexford. As the only facility that fully rehabilitates seals within the
Republic of Ireland, SRI responds to strandings nationwide. Most reports
are for young grey seal (Halichoerus grypus) and common seal (Phoca
vitulina) pups found sick, injured or orphaned across the Irish coastline.
In addition, SRI pursues understanding and public engagement of ocean
conservation and sustainability through education, community outreach and
research programmes.

SRI is currently accepting applications for their internship programmes for
next year. With rolling start dates year around, these high paced,
full-time positions are for a minimum of 12 weeks, but longer time
commitments are encouraged. After completion of initial training, interns
who excel may be invited to stay longer and offered higher levels of
responsibility with the potential for compensation through living expenses.

Due to Covid-19, Seal Rescue Ireland is only considering applications from
Irish residents until further notice. All offers of internship positions
with Seal Rescue Ireland may be subject to change depending on government
regulations and advice, as well as SRI’s decisions on what is best for the
health and well-being of our team. We thank everyone for their flexibility
and understanding during this crisis.
