The Texas Zoo is in the market for hard-working, passionate college students, or recent graduates, that are interested in developing experience in the zoological field. We offer 4 different internships that will allow students to dive deep into the department of their choosing, but will still encompass a variety of positions within the zoo to give the student a well-rounded internship. While none of the internships are paid, they will provide the experience needed for individuals seeking employment within the zoo industry. Housing is not provided, but The Texas Zoo will assist interns in finding affordable housing options.
