Host a Wildlife Rehab Intern

Possumwood Acres Wildlife Sanctuary

  • 7 people are interested

Possumwood Acres Wildlife Sanctuary is a nonprofit that offers a wide range of services, one being an educational opportunity for students in the form of an 8 week wildlife rehabilitation internship. Since there are so few wildlife rehabilitation sanctuaries, we receive some of the most qualified applicants both nationally and internationally.

That is why Possumwood Acres needs homes like yours where an intern could stay for their 8 week internship.

The intern is responsible for all food expenses and transportation.

If you have a spare furnished room and could help house the next generation of wildlife rehabbers, let us know!
