Join us for a semester as an intern!

The Maryland Zoo is committed to developing the next generation of wildlife, hospitality, and business professionals. Internships give students the opportunity to gain college credit for supervised work and learning experiences while introducing them to professional skills and responsibilities in a career field of interest.

The Maryland Zoo offers a variety of internship opportunities from animal care, veterinary tech, conservation education, and more. The applications for the Summer 2023 internships and the Mary Wilson Scholar Program are now closed. Please check back for future opportunities.
