Deadline to Apply: June 3, 2021 at 5:00 pm EST
Please note: If you are seeking an Animal Care internship, do not apply for more than two opportunities within the same term. Applying to more than two areas may disqualify the candidate from further consideration.
While working in the Animal Nutrition Department, interns will learn all aspects of diet preparation for ZooTampa. The primary role of the intern focuses on zoo-wide diet preparation with opportunities to create enrichment. There is an online course to supplement and expand upon the in-person experiences gained during this internship. On occasion, interns may assist our Associate Curator of Animal Behavior with enrichment items and behavioral observations or the Zoo Registrar in logging a variety of enrichment data into our system.
Internship functions include, but are not limited to:
Applicants must submit an Internship Application, cover letter, and resume in order to be considered for a position.
Internships are unpaid and are designed to meet academic requirements, as applicable, and provide valuable real-world experience for participants. Successful completion of an internship may also yield letters of recommendation, a portfolio of their work when applicable, and important networking contacts. Potential academic credit may be available subject to program eligibility requirements. Candidates seeking academic credit must have arrangements agreed upon between the Zoo and their school before beginning the internship.
Please Note: Interns must make their own accommodation and transportation arrangements. This is an unpaid internship.
