The Rescue and Response Internship is an exciting opportunity for individuals who are interested in increasing their experience and knowledge of marine mammal behavior and the Marine Mammal Stranding Network.  Interns will be responsible for answering the animal hotline and rotating the after-hours on-call.  Interns will coordinate rescue and triage response throughout the Center’s over 600-mile rescue range.  Interns will have the opportunity to participate in marine mammal rescues, releases and other field responses as available.  In addition, interns will be required to assist in other departments and with animal care duties (feed preparations, medical charting, and pen cleaning) for on-site pinnipeds.  Other duties may include: participation in training classes, data entry and tracking, maintaining rescue equipment and assorted miscellaneous tasks.
