Spring 2019 The Hobe Sound National Wildlife Refuge Internship
January 7, 2019 – April 26, 2019
Hobe Sound, Florida
Here’s a chance to live at the ocean for a semester and work with U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service staff. The Refuge consists of 1,091 acres of land right on the Indian River Lagoon. You’ll work in habitats like mangrove, sand pine scrub and beaches. This is one of the most productive sea turtle nesting areas in the SE United States. Home to raptors, bobcat and manatee. The intern will be part of the management team with routine duties, research projects and dealing with the public. This is a resume’ builder type experience.
If interested, see Dr. Richard Snider in room 3 of the Natural Science Building. Paperwork for signing up under IBIO 496 (4) must be done before being submitted to the Refuge for approval.
Housing is provided by National Wildlife Service. There may be a small wage included with this internship!
