Internships available for 2011
The internships are offered from mid March – mid August of each year. We offer wages and housing on the island. Students participate in all three missions of the organization. They will learn medical treatment, triaging, calculating dosages, and tagging under our rehabilitation mission. They will be required to give short educational tours to the public. They will be conducting beach patrols to look for nesting turtles and their tracks for the protection of nests under our conservation program. Interns will travel to Mexico to the largest nesting beach for the Kemp’s ridley sea turtle to train. For more information
