Seattle Aquarium Internships – Summer Internship Deadline is March 10!

The Seattle Aquarium internship program is designed for those with a strong desire to move into the Zoo/Aquarium field as a career path. Our internship is an in-depth program requiring a minimum commitment of 400 hours (maximum of 500 hours) in at least 10 weeks but no more than 13 weeks (32-40 hours per week). Interns must be flexible with their schedule, and will be expected to work weekdays, weekends and holidays. This is an unpaid position and while we may be able to help you in your housing search, there is no housing provided. We will do everything possible to accommodate school requirements for those who can earn class credit for internships. Enclosed are some informational sheets on our internship program and an application. Please note, through this internship experience you may have an opportunity to observe our Veterinarian during rounds and/or procedures, this not a Vet internship. Requests for internship positions are evaluated based on experience (professional and/or volunteer), academic achievement, interview success, willingness and ability to make a commitment to the program and positions available. By successfully completing this internship,students demonstrate responsibility, reliability, and the ability to work both independently and as part of a team. Please see attached flyer for more details

If you find that you cannot make a commitment to the internship program at this time, you are encouraged to visit our website for alternate volunteer opportunities which may be more what you’re looking for.
