Location: Yulee, Florida

White Oak offers two internships which may be of interest to UVM Animal & Veterinary Sciences majors: EQUINE MANAGEMENT INTERNSHIP and WILDLIFE CONSERVATION INTERNSHIP.

Sitting on 10,000 acres of serene southern forest, with five and a half miles of St. Marys riverfront, and over 100 structures, White Oak is truly a unique property. A former rice and tree plantation, White Oak hosts meeting, conferences, and corporate retreats for groups looking to escape from the busy world into a productive setting. The natural surroundings, nine-hole golf course, and elegant buildings decorated with antiques and artwork from around the world provide an inspirational and relaxing atmosphere for guests.

The conservation center houses over 30 imperiled species as part of their conservation breeding programs with the goal of saving some of the world's most iconic species from extinction. Rhinoceros, okapi, and cheetah form the core of their flagship species approach to conservation- both in Florida and across the globe. They offer public tours and events that take you behind the scenes of a working conservation center and give you a chance to meet some of their animal residents and their expert caretakers.
