Fancy staying at a resort in the Maldives? And the icing on the cake; it’s all-expenses-paid with this internship.
Coco Palm Dhuni Kolhu is offering a two-week summer internship at their resort in the Maldives where they have a turtle rescue centre, named the Olive Ridley Project Marine Turtle Rescue Centre.
Some of the intern’s daily responsibilities will include feeding turtles, cleaning their holding tanks, attending rescue missions to collect turtles in need and interacting with guests who visit the centre.
Coco Collection has promised that the intern will gain valuable veterinary experience from one of the UK’s leading specialist turtle veterinary surgeons, Dr Claire Petros, the lead veterinarian at the Olive Ridley Project.
How do you get this dream internship? Applicants must submit a 2 to 3-minute video and a 500-word cover letter explaining why they think they would be a good fit for the role. They do not need to have previous experience but must be over the age of 18 and keen to work in a related field. It is open to all nationalities, with a negotiable start date in August.
