Center for Wildlife

Wildlife care intern

June - August 2019 • Cape Neddick, ME

What I liked

I loved getting to work with animals and learn about their needs and troubles in the modern world. I also enjoyed getting to peek my head into the examination room and get a close up look at the animals we bring in.

What I wish was different

Even though it was an important part of the facility’s upkeep, A lot of my time was used washing dishes and doing laundry. It’s necessary, but not preferable to animal care

Advice

It’s a lot of manual labor. Be prepared with bug spray and sun block if you go in the summer. Also be prepared to stand for most of the day!

Medical Center Intern

June - August 2018 • Cape Neddick, ME

What I liked

EVERYTHING! Working with the animals was amazing, some of the other interns are now people I consider lifelong friends, and I learned something new every day.

What I wish was different

I wish I had been able to get funding from my college. This wasn't possible as their application cycle didn't grant internships until well into May. This is a 40 hr per week internship and I had to work an additional job just to have income.

Advice

Have good shoes that you can stand and walk around in all day!! You will be very busy.
