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.

In light of current events, our onsite internship program has been suspended indefinitely in order to comply with health regulations and for the safety of participants, staff, and animals alike. Please check back frequently for updates.
