The Seal Rescue Centre is completely volunteer run and relies on passionate people from all around Ireland and even the world to give up their time to come to Ireland to care for the seal pups in need. With their dedication and hard work our rescue centre has been able to rescue wildlife that would otherwise not survive.
We offer several seasonal internships. We require a minimum of 12 weeks commitment for our internship positions & we expect our interns to be passionate and self motivated as the days are long, sometimes 9 -12 hours and the work is tiring and dirty! For non-local interns, we have housing options available at €85 a week. This includes a bed in a shared room and food.
