Dear Coral List Serve Members:

The Marine Ecology Expeditions (M.E.E.) 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 M.E.E. and its internship partners.  Interns gain valuable
practical experience while working with M.E.E. 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.  M.E.E. 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 M.E.E.
