Description

The Northwoods Ecology Internship is available to undergraduate and graduate students who are exploring careers in wildlife biology, zoology, environmental sciences, ecology, wildlife management, and animal behavior. To be considered for this internship, you should be at least 18 years of age, hold a valid driver's license, have a willingness to learn, and be comfortable with groups of diverse people. As an intern, you will educate NABC visitors about Northwoods wildlife, black bears, and our small animals by conducting programs for visitors. This position will be responsible for all aspects of small animal care including but not limited to: maintaining clean enclosures, feedings, food logging, food prep, enrichment activities, handling, and guest interaction. You will also be responsible for handling the small animals, managing interactions between the animals and guests, and giving visitors information on local flora and fauna. You will assist in bear care when necessary, but the main focus of this internship is Northwoods ecology. This internship is located in Ely, MN, and is offered during the summer and fall semesters.
