Marine internship programmes
We work in partnership with other organisations in the marine sector to offer internship programmes to young people interested in a career in the marine environment.

What did you enjoy the most about the internship? The range of activities we completed. Both research-based work in the office, and the days out by the coast with the schools and volunteering with Kent Wildlife Trust.
