Internship Program

Are you a college student considering pursuing a career in Zoos? If you would like to gain experience in the field and work hands-on with the animals at the Charles Paddock Zoo then this program is for you. Come work side by side with the zookeepers and learn about every aspect of what it takes to care for exotic animals.

We currently work directly with Cal Poly SLO’s Animal Science Department and priority will be given to students from that department. If you are a Cal Poly student from any other department or a student from a different college, we also encourage you to apply. Please note that we do require you complete at least one morning shift (4hrs) per week of internship.
