Want to hold sharks, stingrays, sea turtles, and other sea life this summer while advancing your interest in natural science, padding your resume, receiving credit hours (see below), and having tons of fun? Here is your opportunity!!!
The Coastal Marine Education and Research Association (CMERA) is offering weekly sessions of natural science field research in the beautiful Myrtle Beach, South Carolina area. Most other research or internship opportunities available to you this summer will require long hours of lab work with little to no field work. We are offering a 100% field research opportunity. Come spend as many weeks as you would like with CMERA this summer and everyday will be spent on a boat in local estuaries catching and handling wild animals (sharks, stingrays, sea turtles, other fishes, crabs, and many other marine organisms) while learning about their anatomy and ecology.
There are other opportunities available to you if you want to work in a lab this summer, but we are the only organization that offers 100% field experience!! While lab work is very important in science, we believe that in the natural science disciplines filed work is equally as important. We believe that to truly learn about an organism or an ecosystem you must spend time with it in its natural habitat. This is an excellent opportunity for students interested in any discipline of the natural sciences!

Credit hours: CMERA does not directly provide credit hours toward your degree, BUT you may be able to receive credit through your college or university. Discuss this with your advisor. Most institutions offer hours listed as independent research or directed study for this kind of summer opportunity. They may also require you to attend a certain number of weeks in order to be eligible for credit. We will provide you a letter of completion or other confirmation that may be required by your school.
Professors: Bring a class of 6 or more students and you come for free!! Contact information for a professional reference will be sent upon request.
