Do you have a love for reptiles & amphibians? Thinking of going into Animal Sciences? Apply for our new Animal Care Apprentice Program! This exciting new program is for high school students (9th-12th grade), who are interested in studying animal sciences, biology, zoology or becoming a veterinarian. Students will work closely with our Animal Care Coordinator throughout the course of this program and learn the history, diets, enclosure setups, and care protocols of our resident amphibians and reptiles- both native and exotic. This program takes a hands-on approach and students will also be assisting with tank cleanings, water changes, weights and measurements, etc. 

 

Applicants must be willing to- lift heavy tanks, get their hands dirty, handle insects, feeder rodents, etc. Reliable transportation and no other prior commitments are a MUST
