Wildlife Sanctuary/Zookeeper Intern : This internship will help prepare you for a career in the field of Zookeeping and Animal Caretaking. You will assist our Sanctuary Manager & Zookeeper in our Wildlife Sanctuary elevating the quality of life of animals in captivity. You will be performing animal husbandry to include assisting in the daily feeding, cleaning, and enrichment of enclosures.

You will help lead volunteer activities, forage for wild plants, and perform a variety of tasks within the sanctuary.
