The Horticulture department is currently seeking applicants who desire a career in Zoological Horticulture. The interns will not only be exposed to the daily tasks of the horticulture teams by working in their sections but they will also be educated in the areas of Zoo landscape architecture and paddock design. It is our goal to offer a dynamic internship to individuals who have chosen a career in Zoological Horticulture who would like to gain firsthand experience in a dynamic facility with a multitude of systems. Zoo Miami’s Horticulture professional intern program is designed to provide qualified students with the opportunity to further their knowledge through practical hands on work experience.
Zoo Miami is the largest and oldest zoological garden in Florida, and the only tropical zoo in the continental United States. Today, Zoo Miami occupies almost 750 acres (340 developed), and is home to over 3,000 animals representing more than 400 different species. We are proud to be active in many global wildlife and environmental conservation initiatives and are currently involved in over 36 projects taking place on six continents. We are experiencing an exciting time of advancement that will focus on five strategic priorities: Animal Well Being, Conservation and Stewardship, Guest Experience, Financial Strength, and Performance Excellence.
Description: The internship at Zoo Miami is designed for college students or recent graduates interested in Landscape design, maintenance and park operation. This internship is unpaid. Interns must commit to a minimum of 320 hours over a 16-week period including but not limited to weekends and holidays.
Although this internship will better equip individuals for a job in the horticulture field, this internship does not guarantee employment with Zoo Miami or Miami-Dade County.
All applicants will be notified upon receipt of all materials. Qualified applicants will be contacted for an interview. Selected applicants will be contacted by the coordinator of their acceptance and notified by Zoo Human Resources for further processing.
