2020 Visiting Internship Program Application Deadline: March 16th

Apply Now for the 2020 Visiting Internship Program

Fauna is accepting applications for the spring Visiting Internship Program, which runs June 8–July, 31, 2020. Application deadline is March 16th. Graduates, undergraduates and post‑graduates from various academic backgrounds (e.g. Anthropology, Biology, Psychology, Linguistics, Philosophy, etc.) and all nationalities are encouraged to apply. This rigorous program combines training in compassionate care for nonhuman primates with experience in non‑invasive behavioural studies. Find out more about this very special 8-week program.

Visiting interns are at the sanctuary daily and will receive training and experience in safe procedures to work around adult non-human primates, particularly chimpanzees. They will assist in preparation of meals and enrichment, cleaning enclosures, housekeeping, and participating in a non-invasive behavioral study. The first weeks of the Visiting Internship Program are intensive training in protocols and procedures and understanding chimpanzee behaviors. After several weeks each intern becomes more autonomous and has responsibilities in care and behavioral study.
