The Greensboro Science Center is looking for one qualified intern for a summer aquarium internship. Interns will assist aquarium staff in all aspects of daily animal husbandry and care working with a collection of freshwater and marine fishes including sharks and stingrays. Interns should expect to learn AZA skills to prepare them for a full time career in this highly competitive field.
"My internship at the Greensboro Science Center has been invaluable. Here, I have gained excellent hands-on experience that has equipped me with the tools necessary to be successful in this field. All of the GSC staff have taken an active role in teaching me, as well as providing guidance and insight into what it takes to be in the animal care field. I was also able to witness and be a part of many exciting animal care opportunities not many people get a chance to be involved with. Overall this internship was a major part in shaping me into the aquarist I am today."-Jailynn C., Intern, then Aquarist, Fall 2017
