Marine Mammal Conservation Internship

The submission period will be open November 1 and will close November 30 at 11:59pm EST.

Temporary, full-time, paid 

Whale and Dolphin Conservation’s North American office is offering a 12-week, entry-level Marine Mammal Conservation Internship to candidates with little to no prior experience. This opportunity will help to build skills relevant to the field of marine conservation while providing interns with insight into the inner workings of a non-profit as well as job skills transferable to any field.  

This position is designed for those who do not yet have experience in marine mammal conservation and outreach. We will prioritize candidates who do not have practical experience (internship, significant volunteering, employment) in this field outside of a classroom setting. Applicants should be eager to dive into new experiences and enjoy having a variety of tasks to work on. This position will help to assist staff in three key program areas: Marine Animal Rescue and Response, Education, and Boater Outreach. Occasional opportunities to see whales at sea may also be possible, though no part of this position requires being in the water. 

Successful candidates will gain transferable skills in effective communication and public speaking, project management, developing and delivering presentations and other interpretive resources, working on a close-knit team, and record keeping. 

We have two open positions in 2024 for this temporary, full-time, paid internship. We are seeking to fill one position each for the spring (March-May) and summer (June-August). Each of the successful candidates will be assisting all WDC programming, including Marine Animal Rescue and Response, Education, and Boater Outreach.
