Join our multi-disciplined team of educators, scientists, and conservationists to develop and implement a far-reaching series of programs that will have a measurable, significant and positive impact on wildlife and wild places around the planet, and help transform the City of Indianapolis into a community that embraces environmental stewardship as a core value. Conservation Education Program Interns may assist with education overnights, distance learning and visitor programming.

Beyond the care of the animals that call the Zoo home, there are opportunities to work behind the scenes to support the Indianapolis Zoo and its overall mission. Administrative interns can work alongside professionals in a variety of areas, including fundraising, communications, marketing, education and human resources, to gain valuable knowledge about the day-to-day operations of zoos and other nonprofit organizations. These internships offer opportunities to develop skills in the areas of planning and organization, written and verbal communications, and other administrative skills.
