Here is my best explanation:

'vessel protecting marine species' is the definition.
I can't tell whether this defines the answer.

'work experience aboard' is the wordplay.
'work' becomes 'intern' (interning is a kind of working).
'experience aboard' becomes 'ship' (I can't justify this - if you can you should believe this answer much more).
'intern'+'ship'='INTERNSHIP'
