OTN regularly hosts co-op students from a variety of backgrounds including data management, public relations, journalism, computer science, and marine biology.

OTN occasionally hosts volunteers in positions that vary from 10 – 20 hours per week, and from 1 month to 1 year. If you are interested, please submit a cover letter and resume to otn@dal.ca. Please put either ‘co-op’ or ‘volunteer’ (respectively) in the subject line so you email may be directed appropriately.


Please note that field work and contact with animals is limited and requires specific training and permissions; the majority of co-op and volunteer positions are hosted at headquarters. In special cases, co-op students and volunteers may be connected with researchers.
