St. Louis Zoo

The St. Louis Zoo is offering several paid internships this summer!

During the summer season, each intern will complete up to 300 total hours and will be paid the Zoo minimum wage ($13.50/hour). In addition to their specific duties, interns will meet with their peers for learning opportunities such as tours, career panels, and professional development, as well as demonstrate their learning at the completion of the internship through a presentation.

Internship applicants from underserved areas of our community or with demonstrated financial need will receive priority consideration for paid positions. The minimum age requirement is 18. Interns also can be employed on a part-time basis by the Zoo during their internship; however, they cannot intern and work in the same area.

The paid internships are listed on the Zoo’s employment opportunities page here.

The application deadline is March 1, 2024.
