Volunteer student guide, with visitors at Splash Zone Touch Pool

We're committed to developing the next generation of ocean conservationists through our internship program. We inspire, engage and connect students in the hope of achieving lasting marine conservation outcomes and influencing ocean policy. We also seek to increase diversity in the sciences, and acknowledge the variety of cultures that enrich our world.

To be considered for our internship program, all applicants must complete the application process. We ask that all applicants provide two letters of recommendation. You may attach these confidential letters to your application or they may be e-mailed separately to intern@mbayaq.org.

If your letters will be e-mailed separately, then you must attach one placeholder document for each letter at this step in the application process in order to complete your online application. In each document, please include:

  • Name of the person sending the recommendation
  • Person's job title and his/her affiliation with you
  • What you believe he/she will say about you in the recommendation
