Wildlife Conservation Internship
4 weeks minimum
We work with a non-profit organization with one overarching objective - to have a positive impact on conservation. We rescue and rehabilitate wildlife with the goal of release. More importantly, we look for patterns of threats that our local wildlife face and then work towards solutions to those threats. In addition we are reintroducing locally extinct species. We are currently reintroducing the Scarlet Macaw and plan to reintroduce the endangered Geoffroy’s Spider Monkey in the near future. Students will have the opportunity to learn the basic practices of wildlife conservation while getting hands on experience in wildlife rescue and animal care.
The students will learn basic concepts of wildlife conservation plus the applied practices of animal husbandry.
