Safari Lake Geneva is dedicated to promoting awareness of conservation issues through immersive and interactive wildlife experiences. Safari interns are valuable members of our team.
Safari interns will assist the Safari Lake Geneva staff in fulfilling the mission and objectives of the park. Primary duties include assisting guests entering the park, oversight and upkeep of the contact animal area, disseminating information to tour participants, and handling admission transactions. Interns may also be responsible for assisting with animal husbandry and light maintenance and construction. Interns have the potential to work with a variety of animals (small and large mammals, reptiles, amphibians, birds, and arthropods) and to participate in educational programs and outreach. Interns are required to complete a project that benefits Safari Lake Geneva and is completed during the internship period. Interns are supervised by Safari Lake Geneva staff.
Qualifications: Candidates must have completed one year of a college degree program in biology, animal behavior, zoology, education, or other related field. Candidates must also have excellent communication skills, enjoy working with people of all ages, and be able to work in a team environment. Interns must be self-motivated, reliable, prompt, able to lift 50 pounds, and able to work in all weather conditions. Internships are experience-based and are therefore unpaid (housing is also not provided). It is required that an intern dedicates at minimum 16 hours per week over the course of three months, or 192 total hours (schedules may be flexible based on the candidate’s availability). It is advisable to apply as early as possible.
