Marine Ecology Expeditions, BonaireVia ecologyofcoralreefs.com:

The Marine Ecology Expeditions (MEE) Caribbean Internship Program is offering 3 – 6 month work experience internships in Bonaire, Dutch Caribbean. The hands-on training in coral reef ecology and conservation will provide work experience that is not available at most universities. The specific skills you learn will depend on ongoing research projects and needs of MEE and its internship partners. Interns gain valuable practical experience while working with MEE and are an integral part of the program by leading high quality expeditions along the coast of Bonaire during the day or night. Examples of skills that might be learned during the internship are prioritizing and scheduling; leading expeditions on coral reefs, mangroves, or seagrasses; fish, algae and invertebrate ID; laboratory skills in feeding ecology; video analysis; nutrient analysis or microbiology; designing and implementing ecological studies; data analysis; report writing; grant writing; public speaking; and assisting with public education and outreach. MEE internships are intense and physically demanding. Many activities are repetitive, and must be done with accuracy and great care to ensure the high quality of the research and public education at MEE. For more information and applications contact coordinator@marinecologyexpeditions.org.
