Internships & Careers


Location:  Islamorada, Forida

Theater of the Sea volunteer interns work alongside animal care staff to feed and care  for dolphins, sea lions, sea turtles, tropical fish, sharks, stingrays, and marine  invertebrates.

Interns are trained to assist with fish preparation, exhibit upkeep, and animal feeds through observation, discussion, and participation with employees and by completing assigned reading materials.  They are given several written quizzes to evaluate their progress.

Interns work an eight hour day five days a week and may select to participate in the program for one to six months.   A commitment of three or more months is preferred.

University accreditation for completion of the internship program is common and must be coordinated by you through your school. Theater of the Sea will provide validation of participation upon completion.
