The Wolf Conservation Center is pleased to offer the opportunity for interns to gain experience in wildlife conservation and education. Interns will learn about animal husbandry and enrichment; environmental education; enclosure and grounds maintenance; and non-profit fundraising by participating in daily activities alongside WCC staff. Daily activities that interns will assist with include food preparation, helping with on-site education programs, and enclosure construction.
There are two internship sessions, spring and summer, with the spring internship geared towards high school students and the summer internship designed for college students. This is an unpaid internship opportunity. College credit is offered if desired; interns are responsible for obtaining necessary approval from their university.
