A Luxury Hotel In The Maldives Is Hiring An Intern To Look After Turtles In Its Rescue Centre

Who said the perfect job doesn't exist? This might be one of the best summer internship opportunities you'll come across.

This luxury hotel in the Maldives is running a marine turtle rescue centre and is currently looking to hire an intern for two weeks in August to look after the turtles along with their veterinary experts. The list of duties includes feeding the turtles, cleaning their tanks, attending turtle rescue missions, providing information to guests and posting about the experience on Instagram. And if that's not enough, the lucky candidate will have all their expenses covered including flights, accommodation and food.

    The resort won't merely function as a base for your internship. You can also take advantage of the excursions available to guests, including a sunset cruise, diving, dolphin watching, and a group snorkeling trip in Baa Atoll.

    According to their site, marine biologists, divers, snorkelers, and boat crews find most of our patients entangled in ghost gear. With injuries too severe for immediate release,  many of the turtles would almost certainly not survive without treatment.
