Animal Care Internship Program

We have decided to re-open applications for the Summer 2017 internship! Please send your resume and cover letter to volunteermanager@wcsv.org


Interns are responsible for providing care to the orphaned, sick and injured wildlife admitted to WCSV. Interns will get to experience the examination process of incoming wildlife, learn different treatment techniques, capture and release wildlife, learn different husbandry requirements for the many different species WCSV receives, and assists WCSV’s staff in training new volunteers. Interns will also have an opportunity to learn different diagnostic techniques such as avian and mammal fecal testing and blood work.
