The Cincinnati Zoo has a terrific Intern program for college students or recent college graduates. They offer three sessions a year, Winter, Summer, and Fall. An internship at the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden is very coveted and is a great asset to include on a resume. The Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden’s intern program offers a wide range of experiences in the areas of animal care, business, development, environmental education, group sales, horticulture, information technology, veterinary technology and wildlife research.  Animal science majors may be interested in:

Animal Care (Unpaid) - Available during the summer session only:  Interns working in the Animal Care departments have the opportunity to work under the supervision of experienced animal keepers. Interns help to maintain the animal collection by preparing diets, cleaning exhibits, shifting animals, and monitoring the health of the collection. Working with the keeper staff, interns gain experience in providing for the needs of exotic animals in captivity and acquire better understanding of the requirements of these animals. Interns are assigned to a morning and afternoon animal area and are working from the hours of 8:00am to 3:30pm, generally Monday-Friday, but some weekends may be required.
