Internships at Conservation Ambassadors are a fantastic way to gain experience in the fields of exotic animal and wildlife management and training, as well as conservation education and outreach. Internships are offered year-round on a competitive basis and are available to enrolled university students or recent graduates. We accept both local and out-of-state applicants. Durations and time requirements for interns will vary by season and the potential candidate’s enrollment status. Programs can be tailored based on student needs and interests, but typically fall within one of the following three major categories:
- Animal Husbandry
- Behavioral Enrichment
- Conservation Education and Outreach
We’re proud of our close connection with Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo. We frequently work with students studying Biology, Wildlife Management, Animal Science, Education, Psychology, and Landscape Architecture and are familiar with Cal Poly’s philosophy of “learn by doing.” Students wishing to complete an internship with us can elect to receive college credit according to their department’s standards. Another enriching opportunity for Cal Poly students is completing senior projects with us. If you are interested in interning at Conservation Ambassadors, or, if you are a Cal Poly student interested in designing a senior project that involves the animal sanctuary, read our information for prospective interns and complete our Internship Interest Form (below) or download the application PDF.
