The Staten Island Zoo is extremely committed to our internship programs. Our goal is to provide great learning experiences for interns while continuing an exceptionally high level of care for our zoo animals.
Commitment to high quality work is always rewarded with opportunity. Interns are expected to work hard, but also to enjoy their time here as much as possible.
While unpaid, internships at the Zoo are of great value as educational experiences. With a close staff to intern ratio, interns are a part of the zoo family. During their time at the Zoo, interns gain hands-on, practical work experience.
Interns must be available two days a week*. Internship opportunities range in length from 3 months to one year, and have a minimum requirement of at least 3 months. Internship start dates are generally at the beginning of the following months: January, June, and September.
