Currently we do not offer a "teen" program. However, we do have opportunities in both our education and wildlife rehabilitation departments for unpaid internships and volunteering. In the education department, interns and volunteers assist with the care of over 40 resident ambassador animals alongside staff. On the wildlife hospital side, interns and volunteers work under close supervision of staff in the rehabilitation and re-release of injured and orphaned wildlife.
