greenberg C.R.O.W. (Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife, Inc.) - (Carolyn Greenberg)

"The Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife (CROW) gives an incredible experience to people who are devoted, compassionate, and efficient. This externship gave me the chance to learn how to draw blood from various species, place catheters in, take radiographs, give medications, and lots more. This externship is amazing for students who can work on a team, communicate effectively, and learn on the job. Do not apply if you can't stand for more than a few hours and if you can't focus after a normal eight hour work day. We log our ours after every day and I only had one day that was less than 11 hours. You will get dirty and gross, but the knowledge you'll get out of it is way more than you expect. You work closely with the hospital director, veterinarians, and veterinary technicians, all who are amazing. You will learn more about the hospital portion of rehabilitation than reintroducing the animals back into the wild. You'll be living on Sanibel Island in Florida and you have two days off per week, free to travel, bike (free from COW), kayak, and explore on your weekends."
