Reef Environmental Education Foundation (REEF) is now accepting applications for our Summer 2021 Marine Conservation Internship. Interns support REEF’s educational programming and general operations from the REEF Campus in Key Largo, Florida. The REEF Campus, with an Interpretive Center and nature trails, serves as an educational center for visitors and groups. It is also the Headquarters for supporting a membership of over 75,000 individuals engaging in REEF’s international citizen science and education programs.
Marine Conservation Interns gain leadership experience as they engage in activities focused on citizen science, community outreach, and education. They learn skills including partnership development, non-profit operations, donor relations, communication, marketing and promotions, data management, event planning, and public speaking. They also have ample opportunities to enjoy all that the Florida Keys has to offer in their free time, including diving, snorkeling, kayaking, and interfacing with other non-profits and government agencies in the area.
Our Summer 2021 dates are May 24 through August 13. The deadline to apply is March 14. Applicants must have completed at least two years of undergraduate work. For more details and how to apply, please visit the external application link on Handshake.
