The Amazon & Beyond Atlantic Team (Primates & Carnivores) is currently seeking applicants who desire a career in animal care to gain hands on experience in a zoological setting. Our collection includes but is not limited to bats, jaguar, giant anteater, GR otter, guanaco, rhea, spider monkey, squirrel monkey, and howler monkey. The interns will not only be exposed to the daily tasks of keepers working in their sections but also educated in the areas of husbandry, training, enrichment, biology, conservation and record keeping. It is our goal to offer a dynamic internship to individuals who have chosen a career in husbandry and management of zoological animals.
Description: The internship at Zoo Miami is designed for college students or recent graduates interested in multi-species animal care. This internship is unpaid. Interns must commit to a minimum of 520 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 zookeeping 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 Human Resources for further processing.
