In an effort to make the marine mammal conservation field accessible to all, Whale and Dolphin Conservation’s North American office is excited to offer two new internship opportunities for 2021. These internships are introductory and best suited for anyone who is considering a career in marine conservation but doesn’t yet have practical experience. Full details on both positions and application instructions can be found on our website at http://bit.ly/2Sr8SQi

Part-time science internships: Interns will gain transferable skills that are applicable to a wide range of scientific studies, regardless of the study subject, including protocols associated with field data collection, species and individual identification, and data processing. As a part-time internship, this position was specifically designed to allow interns the option to hold a paying job outside of their internship. Fieldwork (pending COVID-19 restrictions) will be based out of our office in Plymouth, MA. The deadline to apply is March 14th.

Full-time conservation internships: This opportunity will provide interns with transferable job skills and insight to the inner workings of a non-profit focused on the conservation of marine mammals. Interns will build a strong set of skills working on projects related to public outreach (including formal and informal education), communications, and fundraising. This is a seasonal, temporary position for 2021. Because these positions are paid, candidates must be able to demonstrate that they are legally eligible to work in the U.S. We will consider both in-person and remote candidates for the two available positions. The deadline to apply is March 31st.

Diverse candidates are strongly encouraged to apply for both of these positions. Whale and Dolphin Conservation embraces diversity and equal opportunity. We recognize that the field of marine mammal research and conservation lacks diversity, including within our own organization. WDC is dedicated to creating inclusive opportunities which represent diverse backgrounds, perspectives, and skills.
