We are firm believers of learning outside of the classroom and we understand how beneficial a good internship can be to your studies as well as your career development. That is why we want to make your experience as constructive as possible; giving you the opportunity to be a part of the work we do here but also allowing you to complete independent research within your chosen topics. We want to tailor these internships to the individual so we can all benefit from your time here and you can leave feeling that you are one step closer to your future goals.
As a wildlife husbandry intern you will primarily be working on our sanctuary and in our rehabilitation center where you will help clean enclosures, learn how to prepare a nutritionally balanced diet, and create enrichment devices to promote natural behaviors in all of the animals, as well as many other activities.
We aim to make this internship all-encompassing so we will also give you the opportunities to observe surgeries and necropsies in the clinic, learn how to feed neonates and juvenile animals, and discover how we manage our on-site camera trap project, as well as many others. There will be numerous occasions where you can learn and develop new skills, as well as master some that you may already know.
It is important to understand that we cannot make any guarantees as to what will occur while you are here; whether it be animal emergencies or animal releases; but we aim to give you as many opportunities as possible, and we hope you can understand that no two internships are the same.
