Wildlife Rescue Veterinary Clinic Intern
Kids Saving the Rainforest is a Wildlife Rescue & Sanctuary located in beautiful Quepos, Costa Rica on the Central Pacific Coast. We have an internship opening in our Veterinary Clinic beginning at the end of December 2018/beginning of January 2019. (If you have availability after this, let us know and we may have something for you!)
This internship is a wonderful opportunity that will help in preparing you for a career in veterinary medicine, and is also suitable for veterinarians who would like experience working with wildlife. You will assist our veterinary team in the clinic performing exams, treatments, surgeries, and various procedures. You will assist in the intake of injured and orphaned wildlife, provide routine daily cleaning and feeding for the animals currently residing in the clinic, and assist in necropsies to determine cause of death. Interns should expect a highly variable environment with the possibility of emergency cases coming in at a moment’s notice. You will also assist in our rehabilitation center working with animals in preparation of their release back into the wild, and may help in other areas of the organization including the wildlife nursery, caring for orphaned and injured baby wildlife.
The average internship lasts 85 days, but we encourage our interns to stay on longer should we have availability and it works for the intern's schedule.
