<div dir="ltr"><p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size:12pt;line-height:115%;font-family:"times new roman",serif">Marine Mammals of Maine (MMoME) is a relatively new
non-profit organization federally authorized to respond to live and dead marine
mammals between Kittery and Rockland, Maine. MMoME covers some of the busiest
seal stranding coastline during the summer months, totaling nearly 300 live and
dead animals annually. In 2016, MMoME received authorization to temporarily
hold sick and injured seals for stabilization before transport to long term
care centers-the first and only triage facility on the east coast. MMoME’s
mission also heavily encompasses education and outreach to many different
interest groups, addressing our growing human interaction numbers, and increase
awareness of marine mammals, environmental conservation, and the organization.<br>
<br>
MMoME is seeking 4 motivated, flexible and independent interns for the months
of May through August, or through October, to assist with our busiest time of
year-harbor seal pupping. Interns and volunteers are critical in fulfilling our
mission, and are given the unique opportunity to participate in a variety of
activities. The internship is based out of midcoast Maine (specifically
Harpswell), though travel throughout our response region and rehabilitation
centers in the Northeast will be necessary. Interns must be adaptable and
comfortable with an unpredictable and changing work day as stranding response
and temporary care frequently change. Interns will be required to dedicate at
least 20 hours per week to the internship, and will be required to work during
holidays, weekends, and late hours. This internship is unpaid, though Maine’s
busy summer tourist industry offers many seasonal job opportunities for interns
looking to supplement their income. <br><br><span></span></span></p>
