Internship Opportunities
Indianapolis Zoo
Indianapolis, Indiana

Recently named one of the Top 10 Non-Profit Internship programs, the Indianapolis Zoo offers a unique opportunity to become actively involved in the Zoo’s conservation, research, education, and recreation efforts.

Internships are open to college students (Junior or above), and recent graduates. Interns work 20-40 hours per week for 12 consecutive weeks. Positions are unpaid.

Interns assist with camps, overnights and other visitor programming. Interns will have opportunities to experience programming from a range of viewpoints from development to facilitation.

On-Grounds Interpretation
Interns take part in guest experiences, such as Animal Chats, informal interpretation in the Simon Skjodt International Orangutan Center, throughout the Zoo, as well as participate in day to day preparation and organization of experiences and assist with creating programming.

Program Evaluation
You’ll ask guests for their opinions using surveys, observe how guests use exhibit spaces, and make recommendations for improvement based on the data. We will focus on the dolphin presentation and the new Family Nature Center.

The deadline to apply for summer internships is March 10. To be considered, students need to submit an application form along with a cover letter, résumé, two letters of recommendation and a copy of transcripts.
