Flamingo Gardens is a non-profit animal sanctuary and rehabilitation facility. We take in injured animals and release them if possible. If they cannot be released we give them a permanent home. We are home to large and small mammals, reptiles and birds. We are looking for summer and fall interns. This is an unpaid internship but if done through your school you may receive college credit. On a daily basis you will help the keepers clean enclosures, prepare diets, provide enrichment, assist with operant conditioning, perform maintenance on enclosures, and help with injured animals that come in.
