The Summer Internship Program at Great Cats World Park offers that invaluable real-world experience that can make the difference for your future career-seeking endeavors. You will learn about cat care, wildlife park management and maintenance and have the unique opportunity to get to know not only the vital statistics surrounding endangered cats, but also the personal traits and habits of the individual cats themselves. With more than forty cats in residence representing more than a dozen species, this facility offers a truly unique experience.
We are offering you the chance to work closely with some of the rarest and most endangered cats in the world. In exchange, you will play an integral role as one of the Park’s tour guides for the 2015 summer season. The interactive guided tours are what serve to set Great Cats World Park apart from every other wildlife park and zoo in the world, so our guides must be top-notch. Successful candidates will be well groomed, articulate, polite, and knowledgeable. The work is both physically and mentally demanding as befits the opportunity of a lifetime. Preference for positions will be given to those that are able to commit for the entire summer season, beginning mid-May and ending in August, with consideration given to school schedules. Limited onsite staff housing is available.
To be considered, please submit your application by March 31st, 2015.
Also - We are launching a junior intern program for those who might be uncertain where the future may lead them. This program is still in the concept stage and is intended for those considering a future career in wildlife. You must be 18 years of age and able to commit to a four-week program.
