The Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium’s Intern Programs offer a unique and exciting opportunity for high school, college students, and graduates (candidates must be at least 18 years of age) to explore and experience the inner workings of a modern zoological park. A variety of disciplines are available from which students or graduates may choose.
Program participants will gain meaningful experience and basic knowledge in their primary area of study by gaining a broader view of a modern zoological park, via practical hands-on experience, assisting the Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium’s professional staff with daily operations, and completing an optional research project.
