Research Apprenticeship Program
Engaging Youth in Conservation Research
This year-long program starts with a paid four-week summer apprenticeship opportunity working alongside the zoo’s scientists. Group activities with other career program participants will take place throughout the school year. These activities will help youth learn how their summer conservation research ties to school studies and provide an opportunity to reflect on the type of career and study path they’d like to pursue in the future.
The application deadline for the summer 2013 program has passed.
