PrideRock - Internships

"... What we have enjoyed, we can never lose ... all that we love deeply becomes a part of us."

We are always looking for enthusiastic individuals who are dedicated to providing the best possible care for rescued big cats while maintaining very strict safety protocols. We strive to help interns gain experience and knowledge in the animal industry and educate them about wildcats in captivity. While at PrideRock they will gain experience in exotic feline husbandry, assist in the construction of habitats, observe veterinary procedures and help with fund-raising projects, as well as assist with day to day duties around the compound.

Internships are generally for a period of three months and a non-paid position. Candidates should have at least two years of undergraduate program studies in zoology, animal management, biology or a related field.

Interns must be at least 18 years of age, have a valid driver’s license, and in good physical condition. Must be able to lift 50 lbs. consistently and comfortable on ladders. Must be able to work in all weather conditions and must obtain a tetanus vaccination prior to participating in the program.

Thank you and we look forward to having you intern at PrideRock!
