Specialty Internships

It takes more than expert animal care to run the Chicago Zoological Society. From our award-winning education programs, to the staff training department, and event planning, the Zoo hosts team members with a wide variety of talents. Specialty internships are a unique way to gain experience in a professional setting. Some positions are full time, others are part time. Positions are available throughout the year depending upon projects and staffing needs.

Please note: Internships and work-study opportunities may not be offered in all areas every term based on animal and staffing needs.
