We asked a group of current and past interns to share a little about their unique experiences while at CARE. Many of them might be familiar faces, as several intern graduates are now regular volunteers here.
CARE's intern program is a 4 month long, intensive training session typically for students who are enrolled in a 4 year degree program or have recently graduated from college. Most are interested in various fields working with animals (specifically big cats), although many go on to do other things.
Interns gain practical experience working with exotic animals, and are involved with our educational and research programs. Interns at CARE assist with feeding, cleaning, animal health, animal management, behavioral studies, chemical immobilization, record keeping, assisting in construction and habitat modification, public speaking, fundraising and related activities. Interns are also involved with the volunteer and tour program.
