We are currently accepting new interns & volunteers.


We always welcome volunteers and interns!  Internships can be completed to meet your University's guidelines to earn credit.

There is no difference between a volunteer and intern position, except interns receive University credit.

You must be at least 18 years old to volunteer with us.

Volunteers and interns help out with the day-to-day activities.  These include animal husbandry, landscaping, maintenance and educational outreach, and can range anywhere from cleaning, to scrubbing/filling waters, feeding, giving tours, building new enclosures, and facility maintenance.  Volunteers and interns will also gain knowledge of rehabilitation techniques and practices, as we rehab many mammals and birds throughout the year.


After a volunteer/intern has volunteered for 20 hours, they have the potential to work with the animals (at the discretion of Staff, and never without a staff member present). 

Please apply below, filling out an application and uploading a copy of your resume!
