Education Internships

The Potter Park Zoo Education Department is offering a limited number of unpaid full and part-time internships.  Duties may include developing programs and/or activities under the guidance of education department staff, research, data entry, and additional department projects as assigned.  For interns that qualify, there may be some occasional paid opportunities to serve as hosts for overnights or working with our Zookambi summer camp program. 

Please Note: Education Department Interns do not participate in animal husbandry, nor do they have contact with exhibit animals.  However, interns will have the opportunity to gain experience handling education animals.
