WRC provides qualified internship applicants the opportunity to gain hands-on experience working with wildlife in our seasonal Mammal and/or Avian Nurseries or Turtle Care. Interns will learn skills that include: wildlife handling, hand feeding, species identification, nutrition, husbandry, behavior, disease/illness treatments, admit protocols, and working with dedicated and compassionate volunteers. Nurseries are open from Mid-March through Mid-October, there are different sessions within that time frame available for interns depending on availability (see for details).
Commitment of 20-30 hours per week and 300 hours minimum to complete the internship. Applicants must be 18 years of age or older to apply. College students, college graduates, or people just looking for a fun hands-on experience with wildlife are all welcome. Housing is not provided. Working with wildlife requires some labor-intensive tasks, so you must be capable of standing for long periods of time, lifting 30+ pounds, working in a hot and humid environment, and bending down/sitting on the ground.


Required application materials: Online application form, cover letter, letter of recommendation, and resume

Our requirements for internships are fairly simple. You must, however, be very willing to do a lot of manual labor. Working with wildlife means a lot of cleaning and lifting. It means being on the ground while cleaning out cages and feeding animals. You'll be moving cages and large boxes/bags of food and you'll be working outside on and off throughout the day. This is a very labor-intensive, hands-on experience.

  • 20-30 hrs/wk for a minimum total of 300 hrs/season
  • available days, nights, weekends, holidays
  • able to follow specific instructions
  • minimum age of 18 years
  • prior management experience or hands-on animal experience is desirable but not necessary

Our internships are unpaid and you must have transportation to get to the center. Mammal nursery interns must also be able to drive to our mammal nursery off-site caging area approximately 15 minutes east of the Roseville center.
