During the internship program, interns will work closely with a mentor

provided with training on species identification (where relevant),
survey techniques and data analysis. 

Interns can expect to be provided with opportunities to conduct field
surveys around Singapore. Dive certified interns will primarily assist
in underwater survey of coral reefs. Interns that are not dive certified
will be given opportunities to assist in other habitat assessment
surveys (mangroves, seagrass, intertidal, mudflats), as well as water
quality and other surveys around Singapore. Interns will also be
provided opportunities for data analysis and GIS mapping. 

Interns are encouraged to implement individual projects related to their
areas of interest. At the end of the internship, interns will be
required to submit a project report and / or make a presentation to a
management panel. Interns who have demonstrated good performance will be
considered for emplacement upon completion of the internship. 

Certificate Required: 
Interns who are interested in reef surveys are expected to be certified
in advanced Open Water SCUBA, and demonstrate that they are current on
their diving skills.
