Environmental Education Intern

Wolf Conservation Center - South Salem, NY

Internship

The Wolf Conservation Center (WCC) offers year-round environmental education and conservation internship opportunities for college students, those who have recently graduated, or others looking to explore a new career path. The internships are designed to expose interns to the field of conservation education and wildlife biology. Interns conduct a variety of education programs and assist with the daily operations of the WCC, which may vary depending on the internship season.

Throughout the course of the internship, interns will primarily deal with the general public but will also have opportunities to interact with camps and scout groups. Interns will contribute to the success of the WCC through development of special projects, support work, and general maintenance.

The WCC does not offer housing for interns and all interns are responsible for securing their own transportation to and from the WCC.
