Throughout the year, AWCC plays host to intern students from across the country and around the world. These students are biology, zoology and veterinary science majors and the Center provides a perfect training ground for them to hone their skills. These students participate in animal care, interpretive programs for our guests, general upkeep of the Center’s campus, and even provide educational programs for the school students throughout the state.
This year, the Center is constructing the first of three Wildlife Shelter / Intern Housing units to better house the interns that spend summers and winters with us. Keep an eye out for this great new project, scheduled to be up and running this summer.
