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.
