Internships & Externships Available

Zoo Internships and Externships are currently closed. Please check back soon for more details.

San Antonio Zoo's internship program is designed to allow college students and graduates an opportunity to gain hands-on experience in their chosen field. Internships are unpaid and housing is not provided. However, credit hours may be earned depending on the intern's school policy regarding internships. Interns are required to work for a minimum of 200 hours.

Internships are available throughout the year, but positions are limited and occasionally may not be available. Applications are accepted throughout the year for our spring, summer and fall internship sessions. Please expect a 2-3 week application processing time after the deadline date. We will contact you for an interview using the email address on your application.

Applications will not be reviewed without a transcript. Unofficial transcripts are accepted but they will be verified with the school. We accept applications from alumni with a final transcript or degree certificate.

Applicants must complete the application online. After completion of the College Intern online application, College Interns should email their transcripts to Jessica Wolanski at

Please make sure to fill out all of the information required. Incomplete applications will not be considered.
