Red Creek offers two levels of summer “Direct Care of Wildlife” internships with a focus on training and education.
Please be advised: schedules and program availability may change due to the pandemic.
Enrollment is NOW OPEN through April 1st.
Any college student interested in wildlife rehabilitation can apply for a level 1 intern position which runs from May through August each summer. Start and end dates are flexible due to various college schedules, but interns must commit to one daytime and one evening eight (8) hour shifts per week, plus one additional weekend shift per month, for thirteen (13) consecutive weeks.
The Level 1 internship is a volunteer internship. It is unpaid and does not include travel or accommodations. What it does offer is an intense training program including classroom time, on-line classes, and hands-on experience with adult and baby wild animals including mammals, songbirds, waterfowl, raptors, and reptiles.
