Internships (12 weeks)

Wild Sun Rescue Center offers internships to students and individuals 20 years and older looking for relevant experience.

Interns begin their stay at Wild Sun Rescue working alongside the other volunteers. As they become comfortable in our system (within a few weeks), we begin training and work on the internship program. Duties of all interns and 12 week volunteers are listed here.

The majority of an intern’s work here will focus on the animal care and husbandry duties associated with wildlife rehabilitation. Everything we do here at Wild Sun is for the benefit of the animals in our care. The internship program is designed with that in mind, benefiting the animals through data and research after their basic needs are met.
