Interns are given a moderate monthly stipend.
Interns can expect to gain a vast amount of experience both on the water and in our Education Center (EC). In the EC, interns will learn a range of tasks including answering phones, greeting and engaging visitors, processing field data, and performing aquarium maintenance. Additionally, interns will have opportunities to work closely with CRF staff members on a variety of projects related to conservation and non-profit administration. Diving takes place 1-4* times per week, with interns assisting CRF staff and volunteers in the management of CRF’s offshore coral nurseries, the out-planting of coral colonies, and the monitoring of reefs throughout the Florida Keys. Interns will also play a crucial role as the team leaders for the groups of recreational divers that participate in CRF’s dive programs throughout the year. On these programs, interns will be expected to lead divers of varying skill levels through basic nursery and out-planting tasks. Interns are also asked to present to the community on several occasions, assist at outreach events, and participate in important discussions within the foundation. Internship positions generally last four months and are full-time positions (40hrs/wk).
*Diving is weather dependent, and can cause fluctuation in days on the water, sometimes resulting in weeks where there is zero water time.
