Prácticas con mamíferos marinos a partir de septiembre

The International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) is currently accepting applications for Fall Marine Mammal Stranding Internships.

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 program dedicated to marine mammal stranding response on Cape Cod and southeastern Massachusetts. Our division’s 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 an average of over 240 stranding events occurring each year. These stranding events include live and dead seals, whales, porpoises, and dolphins. Interns are cross-trained in all aspects of the program but are assigned to a focus area of either necropsy or response. Qualifying, returning interns may apply for the veterinary assistant internship as well. Interns must be at least 18 years old, must possess a valid driver’s license and secure reliable transportation, be enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate program, or have graduated within 2 years, must be of good physical fitness, able to lift/carry 40lbs, walk long distances in difficult terrain, be comfortable on small boats in nearshore waters, able to swim, and work in harsh weather conditions. Interns must be able to commit to a minimum 3 days a week for the duration of the internship session. Scheduleswill include at least 1 weekend day and may include holidays.
