Connecticut's Beardsley Zoo Internship - (Heather Klaff)

Location:  Bridgeport, CT

"Once you work at a place like Connecticut's Beardsley Zoo, you get kind of addicted. It's really hard to cut it off at the end of the summer and not go back. I definitely don't feel that it's a place where you can do a one-summer internship and then just leave and never have anything to do with them again. I'm planning on doing another summer there, but even if I don't, I'll be back to visit, probably even over winter break. I just really loved the people and the animals there, and working alongside them; and I'm also very grateful for the experiences that they gave me there. It's a lot of hard work, but I have some very funny, fond memories of working there that I'll never forget, and I look forward to making a lot more the next time I go back."
