From Logan Judy, Marketing Manager, Columbian Park Zoo:
The Columbian Park Zoo is now accepting applications for our Fall 2016 Internship Program, including animal care and zoo education positions.
Animal Care Interns assist zookeepers with the daily husbandry tasks associated with a variety of domestic and exotic animals housed at the Zoo. Some of our past interns have gone on to successful careers as zookeepers and veterinarians at other facilities.
Education Interns work with Animal Ambassadors to present conservation messages to a variety of audiences at the Zoo and throughout Greater Lafayette. As a result, education interns build experience in the areas of informal science education and nature interpretation. Through school outreach programs interns can also develop skills delivering content aligned to Indiana Department of Education and Next Generation Science standards.
Applicants should be dedicated and dependable students with strong communication skills and a minimum 2.5 GPA. The program requires a minimum 12-week commitment at 15 hours per week. Internships are unpaid, but provide an exciting way to gain the hands-on experience necessary to become competitive in today’s job market.
For more information and the internship application, please go to our website: http://www.columbianparkzoo.org/1672/Internship-Programs. Fall 2016 Internship Application packets are due by 5:00 pm on Tuesday, April 5, 2016.
