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.

To learn more about our internship opportunities, please check out our careers page or contact us.

Do You Have 2-4 Hours A Month To Preserve Your Local Ecosystem?

Our volunteers are the driving force behind making true change in ecosystem health and wild cat conservation. Some like to volunteer in the field, others help us maintain our online presence, and some work with events. With just a few hours a month, you can make a difference, too.
