ANIMAL CARE INTERNSHIP
Summer 2021 Animal Care Internship positions are filled
Please check back in July for more information regarding the Fall 2021 Animal Care Internship opportunities.
Animal Care interns help in all aspects of operations including the full rehabilitation process, the daily care of injured and orphaned wildlife and their enclosures, assisting with transport as needed, and communications with the wildlife rehabilitation network in western North Carolina. Interns assist in facility upkeep and maintenance as needed and are provided the opportunity to experience all aspects of the non-profit if there is interest.
No two days in wildlife rehabilitation are the same. Interns must be flexible, dedicated, dependable, and comfortable working in a team setting with other volunteers and communicating with the public.
Interns are required to commit to a 4-5 month internship period, and will carry out a weekly set schedule that they are accountable for during the entirety of their internship. Hour commitments are based on seasonal needs.
Thank you for your interest in becoming an Animal Care Intern with Appalachian Wildlife Refuge.
