We have limited availabilty for summer interns and volunteers at this time.


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!

Filling out an application does not guarantee that you will receive a volunteer or intern position.

Currently, all volunteer and internship positions are unpaid and unfortunately we cannot provide housing at this time.

We will ask all interns and volunteers to be able to commit to at least one 6 hour day a week, and all applicants must complete an initial phone screening. 

For interns and volunteers, a vaccination for COVID-19 is highly preferred, but not required at this time.
