Entry level experience with exotic husbandry of any kind, and big cat management in particular, can be difficult to attain. A summer working among the residents of Great Cats World Park is a rare opportunity for students and young professionals looking to attain that crucial hands-on experience. Full time internships will be open to a select few applicants for the season.
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 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 on-site staff housing is available.
