This is ideal for candidates who are interested in the educational side of Zoo work. Naples Zoo recently implemented a formal education program and this internship will be the very first in this new department. There will opportunities to learn about informal & formal programming and interpretation, the role of biofacts, how to design programs for visitors on-grounds and for students visiting on field trips, and conduct research related to education. Some interns will also be working on research needed for developing new programs. This internship is designed to provide students with a well-rounded educational experience whereby students will be exposed to a mix of formal and informal education practices in addition to curriculum development and program evaluation. Interns will work directly with our Director of Education to support education department needs.
