scanlon Connecticut's Beardsley Zoo Internship - (Kyle Scanlon)

"My experience as an intern at Connecticut's Beardsley Zoo in Bridgeport far exceeded my expectations. The program allowed me to experience the complete operation of a public zoo from routine animal care to dealing with a child separated from her parents. In addition to being allowed to help design and build part of a new aviary exhibit, I was fortunate to be given responsibility for the care of the predator animals. By far the most rewarding part of my experience was my care and involvement with the newly born Amur Tiger clubs. The Beardsley Zoo management and keepers were excellent mentors and wonderful teachers."
