Marine Biology Internship Program

Interns in The River Project's Marine Biology Internship Program (MBIP) participate in environmental science research projects under the supervision of The River Project staff, with guidance from professional researchers who are recognized experts in their fields. Approximately 275 high school and college students participated in the MBIP from 1989 to 2007, studying urban wildlife, habitat, and local water quality (see the Research section). 

The River Project is currently accepting interns for the MBIP on a case-by-case basis due to space constraints and dependent upon the specific interests of the student. For more information, contact Nina Hitchings at or (212) 233-3030.
