We are working to save the wildlife!

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 requires a selfless dedication to the care and rearing of orphaned baby wildlife. You will
assist our Nursery Manager in a variety of duties that may include syringe feeding, preparing special diets for the babies, collecting wild leaves, and supervising the climbing and foraging of young animals as they practice for their lives in the wild. This position requires long hours, a willingness to work some night shifts, and foregoing personal comfort in rustic conditions in the interest of the babies you are working hard to help save. A preference for a 6-month placement is given for this internship given the extensive training required.

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.
