Internship Program

The Alaska SeaLife Center (ASLC) is sponsoring an internship program for college students or graduates who are interested in gaining an educational experience in a world-class marine facility. ASLC internships offer a well-rounded, educational experience working in a variety of areas within the Center. Depending on the type of internship, duties may include assisting aquarium, avian or marine mammal staff with animal husbandry tasks; helping with marine-related research projects as well as teaching and/or preparing lessons in our education department. Interns will be required to participate in a variety of areas and all interns are required to participate to some extent in the interpretive aspects of our operation. Interns will not be permitted to participate in ASLC activities on vessels unless specified in the internship.
