<p class="MsoNormal">IFAW is an international non-profit organization. This internship is based out of our International Operations Center in Yarmouth Port, Massachusetts, USA. IFAW’s Marine Mammal Rescue and Research Program is a federally authorized response
 program dedicated to marine mammal stranding response on Cape Cod and southeastern Massachusetts. Our mission is to promote the conservation of marine mammal species and their habitat by improving the rescue and humane care of stranded marine mammals, advancing
 stranding science, and increasing public awareness through education. Cape Cod is a marine mammal stranding “hot spot” with over 240 strandings occurring each year. These strandings include live and dead seals, large whales, porpoises, and dolphins. The Cape
 Cod region also experiences an unusually high frequency of live, mass stranded dolphins.
