ATTENTION COLLEGE, COLLEGE GRADUATES & HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS:

We are currently seeking interns to assist us in the care of animals at the Animal Embassy public exhibit located at the Stamford Museum & Nature Center in Stamford, Connecticut. The position includes assistance with maintenance of the animal enclosures and the exhibit (which involves cleaning, sweeping and any duties necessary to maintain an ideal environment for both animals and visitors), possible assistance with feeding, potential handling of animals, and interaction with visitors. This is a non-paid internship. Training will be provided by our Director and our Animal Care & Education Specialists, and there is opportunity for a wealth of hands-on experience.
An interest in environmental issues, wildlife and animal care is highly desired as is any relevant experience in these fields. Course-work in zoology, ecology, environmental science and/or biology is also helpful, but not required.

We are seeking interns that can devote at least one full day per week (9:00 am – 5:00 pm) or two half-days. Dedicated, punctual individuals are highly desired.
If interested, please call 203.655.5404 for more information, or Email us.

Adult Volunteers Needed!
Are you interested in volunteering with Animal Embassy? We need you!

 

During the heavily-visited months of October/November and Februrary/March/April, we need your assistance for two-hour shifts (10:00 am-12:00 pm & 12:00-2:00 pm) to greet visitors and keep safe numbers of guests in our public exhibit at the Stamford Museum & Nature Center in Stamford, CT.

 

If interested, please call 203-655-5404, or Email us for an application.

 

(The above volunteer position differs from Animal Embassy’s internship program for high school & college students which involves animal care & exhibit work. Please note: this is not an animal care or handling position.)
