Intern Program

Jeri and cubSnowdon offers two summer intern positions, and occasional winter caretaker positions. These are typically opportunities for college students studying some aspect related to animals and wildlife, including wildlife majors, veterinarians, biologists, etc. Many colleges have allowed the experience to be included as a credited course.

Interns live on-site at Snowdon, located in the mountains just outside McCall, ID. Interns learn and provide all aspects of wildlife care at the sanctuary, as well as assist visitors in the Education Center. Interns are not paid wages or salaries, but a small stipend is usually provided.
