Dallas Zoo

Conservation Engagement - Conservation Partner Research Internship

The Dallas Zoo’s College Internship Program provides an interesting and rewarding learning opportunity for currently enrolled undergraduate or post-graduate students at an accredited college/university in the United States. Interns become actively involved in the Zoo’s animal care departments, conservation/research efforts, operations, and administrative positions.

This intern position will work closely with Dallas Zoo’s Conservation team and our web designer to update and refresh the Dallas Zoo’s Conservation Partners webpages. The Intern will pull together and research content on conservation organizations that the Dallas Zoo currently supports and search for relevant photos. The intern will also research and prepare textual content on conservation organizations that the Dallas Zoo might consider supporting in the future.

The Internship will culminate in assisting with the development of new zoo web pages, refreshing our current conservation web pages and developing an annotated directory of select new conservation partners.

Interns work 20-40 hours per week for a minimum of 12 consecutive weeks during one of the sessions listed below. The purpose of the placement is to help the intern gain experience related to their education. The Dallas Zoo will work with students to document necessary time or projects needed to gain university credit for the internship. Unfortunately, we cannot provide transportation, housing, or a stipend.

The deadline for 2017 Summer internships is March 10, 2017.
