|Marine Mammal and Sea Turtle Stranding Program|
Mystic Aquarium responds to reports of live and dead marine mammals and sea turtles along the shores of Connecticut, Rhode Island and Fishers Island, N.Y. A rehabilitation facility is operated for pinnipeds, and occasionally cetaceans and sea turtles. Internships are offered in this program during peak stranding seasons (summer and spring). Interns should be working toward a degree in marine biology, veterinary medicine or a related field. Recent graduates seeking experience in these fields are accepted. There is a minimum requirement of 40 hours per week. Interns must be motivated and responsible and have computer experience, organizational and communication skills, and the ability to work well with others. The duration of the internship varies by season (12 weeks for the summer; 16 weeks for the spring).
The student must be enrolled in or recently graduated from college in order to participate. Internships are open to both undergraduate and graduate students. If the student’s college offers credit for internships, it is the student’s responsibility to arrange for the credit.
