The Northcoast Marine Mammal Center in Crescent City, California, is seeking applicants for Spring internships in marine mammal stranding response and rehabilitation. $1000 housing stipend is available to the first two applicants accepted. Internships are a minimum of 12 weeks, with longer commitments encouraged. Applicants will be living and working in Crescent City, CA. The spring term (Harbor Seal Pupping Season) is the busiest and most "hands-on" term at NMMC.
Interns will participate in:

  *   marine mammal rescue and health assessment
  *   food preparation and feeding patients
  *   wound care and medication administration
  *   blood draw and subcutaneous fluid administration
  *   observing surgeries and necropsies
  *   cleaning pens, pools, kennels and hospital facility
  *   fundraising events and special projects


  *   must be physically fit with the ability to lift 50lbs and walk long distances on the beach in adverse conditions such as hot and cold temperatures, humidity, rain, and wind
  *   must be willing to work 5 days a week including evenings, weekends, and holidays
  *   must be self-motivated, articulate, reliable, and responsible
  *   must work well independently, as well as with a team
  *   must possess a valid driver's license
  *   must have experience with Microsoft Office, Word and Excel
  *   interns are responsible for making all arrangements with their educational institution for university credit

This is an unpaid position with no housing provided, however, we do offer a $1000 housing stipend (in 3 payments) for two spring internships, on a first come first serve basis . All interns are responsible for obtaining housing and transportation. A vehicle is preferred as public transportation is very limited and will not allow for participation in rescues which take place on short notice.
Application Deadline: December 17, 2021
Internship Start Date: Monday February 28, 2021

To Apply: please include the following and submit via email to volunteer at northcoastmmc.org<mailto:volunteer at northcoastmmc.org>. Incomplete submissions will not be considered. No phone calls or faxes please.

  *   a cover letter that includes preferred term length (3-month minimum)
  *   a current curriculum vitae/resume
  *   three references familiar with the applicant's academic/professional performance
