The Birds of Prey Foundation offers unpaid internships that are hands-on in the field of wildlife rehabilitation. Over the course of the internship, individuals will work alongside our experienced rehab staff and learn skills such as handling techniques, cleaning and sterilization procedures, habitat enrichment, food preparation and feeding methods, treatment procedures and more.
Our internship spots are limited and intended for those who are pursuing a career in wildlife.

We offer internships from June through October (our busy season) when there is a lot to learn. Most of our interns work 32 hours per week for 1-2 months. This provides a robust and well rounded view of what goes on at the Birds of Prey Foundation. Many other interns have a job or are still in school, therefore they make a commitment to come 2-3 days per week for 3 months. Special circumstances will be considered.
