So, You Want To Work At A Zoo?
LOVE ANIMALS? LIKE THE IDEA OF HAVING A PLACE TO LIVE WITH ALL UTILITIES PAID?
We strive to make the best environment for our animals. They come first. We hire various positions for different areas of animal care. Below you will find descriptions of each position and the rules that go along with them.
Our primates and other small animals are considered in the small animal internship. There are approximately 300 animals and 61 species in this area. This is the highest priority area of the park for disinfections and it is done daily along with proper zoo formulated foods and strict diets .Enrichment is the most important part of this area as required by the USDA and we here at the park have a great plan in effect which gives the animals of this area something new every day.
BIG CAT INTERNSHIP
This is one the most dangerous position of the park, and we will not employ or take volunteers for this area who can not follow rules and conduct themselves in the highest manner of professionalism possible. Some of these cats have been taken out of the worst of the worst environments possible. In this area, you will be in care for over 165 big cats which requires a lot of time, skill and patience. All of our cats are fed a strict diet made up by our vet of fresh raw meat and the best dry vitamins money can buy. All big cats are fed daily (in the morning) and are fasted one day per week. On the fasting day, they receive bones to chew on. Enrichment for the big cats are changed weekly.
WE WILL NOT TOLERATE ANY VIOLATIONS OF ANIMAL CARE OR ANYONE TEASING, TORMENTING, OR CAUSING NEGLECT TO ANY ANIMAL.
