Internship Opportunities

Felidae also offers internships to students of all ages and skill levels who are interested in ecology and conservation. Interns are immersed in depth into the world of wild cat conservation, including field work, fundraising, public speaking and a wide range of activities associated with operating a non-profit. Our internships are volunteer-based, and do not provide monetary compensation or housing.

The length of an internship is variable, ranging from 3 weeks to longer. While there are no specific pre-requisites (other than a love of cats or science, or both, and a desire to make a difference), we do require interns to make a time commitment in terms of weekly hours and have the ability to meet deadlines.
