Saint Louis Zoo Externships

Saint Louis Zoo Externships
Saint Louis Zoo Externships are offered in the Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall to students who are either currently enrolled in college or have had previous college coursework. Students studying in the areas of biology, zoology, education, animal science or related fields are encouraged to apply.

The externships are unpaid and last about 6 weeks or more. Externs will have the opportunity to learn how the zoo operates and receive hands-on experience in the care of zoo animals. Externs work about 15 hours per week and must be at least 18 years old to apply.

In addition to the care of zoo animals, externs will have other work opportunities in the areas of animal management, education, human resources, marketing, and more. To apply, students need to submit a completed application, cover letter describing areas of interest, resume, transcript, and two letters of reference.

Do you know the difference between an externship and an internship?

The Saint Louis Zoo began in 1910 and today has 18,000 animals on display. Externships are offered to students to help them learn and share in the zoo's key areas of importance that include animal management, research, recreation, and educational programs for all to enjoy.

The location is usually in MISSOURI.
