From the cooperative breeding programs and conservation action campaigns we lead, to restoration of local wildlife and green practices on site, conservation is at the heart of everything at the MN Zoo. The engine of Zoo's conservation work is its Field Conservation team. Our scientists work locally, regionally, and internationally on projects that address a wide range of threats to endangered species and their habitats.
The Field Conservation Research Assistant Intern works under the direction of the Field Conservation Supervisor and may receive additional direction from the MN Zoo's Conservations Biologists and/or Conservation Specialists. The Intern may assist with research tasks including data collection, management, and analysis; maintaining equipment and spaces to assure proper research procedures are followed; and communicating project updates.
