2020 Summer Zookeeper
Internship deadline has past.
The Cape May County Zoo will be accepting applications for its next Summer Zookeeper Intern Program beginning in February, 2021. Applicants accepted in the program will gain experience working with exotic zoo animals.
Interns will shadow a zookeeper and rotate through each area of the zoo. Interns will learn about basic husbandry, diets, exhibit design and repair, medical care, and more. Each intern will design and complete an approved project of their choosing. The interns will spend one day per week at an animal interpretation station in the Zoo.
The program is an unpaid educational internship and preference will be given to science majors enrolled in a Bachelor Degree program.
Working in a zoo can be a physical job, please be sure that you are capable of doing this type of work. Preference will be given to applicants from Cape May County. This is an unpaid, educational internship.
