The Seattle Aquarium internship program is designed for those with a strong desire to move into the zoo/aquarium field as a career path. Our internship is an in-depth program requiring a minimum commitment of 400 hours (maximum of 500 hours) in at least 10 weeks but no more than 13 weeks (32-40 hours per week). We accept new internship applications most quarters for the following positions:
