organization federally authorized to respond to live and dead marine mammals
and sea turtles between Kittery and Rockland, Maine. MMoME covers some of the
busiest seal stranding coastline, averaging 300 live and dead animals annually.
MMoME also operates a triage and rehabilitation center which provides critical
care to sick and injured pinnipeds. Additionally, our mission heavily
encompasses research, education and outreach, and is dedicated to promoting environmental
conservation. MMoME is offering 2 different internships for the 2019 summer harbor seal pup season.<br>
<br>
<b><u>Core
Internship:</u></b> seeking 6 motivated,
flexible and independent interns for the months of May through August, or May
through October. Interns 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 (Harpswell), though travel throughout
our response region and the Northeast will be necessary. Interns will be
required to dedicate a minimum of 40-50 hours per week to the internship
(minimum of 4 days/week), and will include holidays, weekends and night feeds.
This internship is unpaid, though seasonal job opportunities are available in
the area. Housing is not provided but staff may be able to assist with sourcing
options. <br>
