Do you want to help save animals and the environment? Be a positive part in your community?
Help spread conservation messages to others so that they may take part in saving the planet.
As an animal care and outreach intern, you will gain knowledgeable skills in zookeeping, animal presentation, and conservation work.
You will get a hands-on-experience with exotic animals and work side-by side with our wildlife specialists at our Connection Encounters.
Join Sunset Wildlife Connection in its mission of animal education and wildlife conservation. Located near beautiful Pensacola Florida, you will work for a nonprofit exotic animal rescue and animal outreach program where you will develop your conservation education skills at our Wildlife Connection Encounters while also caring for exotic animals. Though you must be able to work with all of our different animals, you will get to tailor your internship to your interests whether it be animal training, reptiles, or education.
· Critical zookeeping and animal caretaking skills
· Valuable education and communication skills
· Multitasking and time management skills

If you want to work with exotic animals in the beautiful, sunny state of Florida, please email your resume, cover letter, two letters of recommendation, and preferred internship term (Fall, Spring, or Summer and year) to SunsetWCinfo@gmail.com.
Will I can get to touch and handle the animals?
Yes, you will handle most if not all of our animals at one point during your internship.
Will I be paid?
No. At this time, this is an unpaid internship but you will gain valuable experience working as a zookeeper with a number of different species.
Will I be hired on at SWC after my internship?
Though it is not guaranteed, this internship does have the potential to become a job in the future.
