Interns will be placed in the zoo where it is believed that the most effective way to ensure that we have a sustainable and long-term future is to educate visitors about challenges -- predominantly caused by human intervention -- facing the animals of the world. Zoos contribute to research by providing controlled environments and by monitoring diets. Since the animals are in secured habitats, the zoo animals appear to be less stressed than wild animals when under close observation. The zoo is also actively involved with international captive breeding programs for both native and exotic endangered species. You may be surprised to learn that 10 - 20% of the world's endangered species are New Zealand natives.
This internship involves working in a stimulating and fun environment across a large number of areas such as working in the Zoo School and educating visitors, doing animal watch, behavioral enrichment, bug harvesting and even occasional cheetah walking!
