Start Your Career With a Splash

 

Internships are designed to provide college students and recent college graduates with an exclusive and hands-on opportunity to gain experience in the nonprofit aquarium/attraction industry and environmental conservation organization field.

Our unique program combines detailed training with applied work experience to result in a comprehensive and dynamic work-study experience; all while under the guidance and coaching of a qualified aquarium staff member. Only a small number of interns are accepted each semester to allow for a more personal experience and the internship program reflects our mission, “to entertain, educate and inspire stewardship of our natural environment."

The Florida Aquarium offers a variety of internships each term. Please click each of the positions listed below for a detailed description of the internship.
