The Internship Program in our wolf park offers hands-on work experience to people interested in a career in a zoological field.
We only give a limited number of internships to students studying biology, zoology, wildlife management, animal behaviour or veterinary medicine who need the experience as part of their educational requirement. This internship is especially suited for students who are looking for an opportunity to conduct field research and behavioural studies on wolves for their bachelor, masters or PhD dissertations.
Interns accepted into this program are expected to learn and successfully perform (under supervision) the duties and responsibilities of an employee in the assigned area. The intern will provide daily care to the animals, including diet preparation, cleaning, general exhibit maintenance, and possibly give guided tours.

• Minimum stay of 6 weeks
As an intern you will also:
• Have hands on experience with the animals
• Learn how educational facilities operate
• Have time to observe the animals
What you are responsible for bringing to Lobo Park:
• A desire to learn

Doing an internship in Spain is NOT a holiday camp! Therefore we are only interested in serious applications because interns not only support the team but they also require continuous monitoring from the Lobo Park staff.
