Pre-Veterinary majors have the chance to work alongside some of the top veterinary professionals in the industry. Interns assist the veterinary hospital keepers in providing care for the hospital patients and quarantine animals. Interns also assist the Commissary Staff in daily diet preparation, delivery, and inventory management.
Interns play an important role in animal conservation and have the unique opportunity to work alongside Keepers/Trainers/Aquarists to assist in various aspects of maintaining the animal collection, including animal husbandry, diet preparation and delivery, exhibit maintenance, as well as behavioral enrichment. The work is challenging, dirty, and often unglamorous, but can be highly rewarding. It offers the personal satisfaction of helping to provide healthy conditions for the animals along with the opportunity to learn the husbandry techniques of a world-class zoo. Animal Care Interns should be prepared to work in all weather conditions and must be extremely dependable.
