Located in northern Wisconsin, surrounded by over a million acres of both national and state forest land, and thousands of fresh water lakes, rivers and streams, we are in a region that is home to an abundance of wildlife.

Northwoods Wildlife Center was incorporated in 1979, after Dr. Rory Foster and his wife Linda Foster provided care for a two day old injured fawn at their veterinarian clinic. The official opening date was June 19th, 1982, which made the Northwoods Wildlife Center the one of the first wildlife hospitals in the Midwest. We currently rehabilitate between 500-600 orphaned, injured, and ill animals each year with the goal for release back to their habitat. We care for many species of native mammals, birds, and reptiles found throughout northern Wisconsin.

This is a full-time (seasonally varies 35-40+ hrs/wk), including some holidays, weekends, and evenings. Salary is based on experience and qualifications. Benefits include HRA (health reimbursement benefits), paid holidays, earned PTO, and sick leave.

Position Start Date: August 1, 2021 - September 1, 2021, depending on your availability.

Application Deadline: June 1, 2021, unless filled sooner.

Wildlife Rehabilitation Intern
Wildlife Center of the North Coast
Wildlife Center of the North Coast is now accepting applicants for our 2021 Wildlife Rehabilitation Internship Program!

This program is meant to be a multi-modal way for interns to learn the basics of wildlife rehabilitation with a combination of coursework training modules and hands-on experience in our clinic. WCNC specializes in aquatic birds, which makes up the majority of our caseload, but also rehabilitates many species of raptors, passerines, and small mammals at our busy wildlife hospital located in Astoria, Oregon. Interns are expected to make a commitment of at least 24 hours a week for a total of 200 hours to complete the internship over a period of 2-3 months.

Seasonal variability will determine which species you are most likely to work with during your internship. Our busiest time of year is typically late spring through winter, with pelagic seabird species being most prevalent in fall/winter. Our most common patients are Common Murres, Western Grebes, Northern Fulmars, Mallards, and Barn Swallows. Some other noteworthy species we see regularly are Bald Eagles, Beavers, Wood Ducks, Auklets, and even the occasional Puffin!

The coursework will address various topics such as: Critical Care, Diagnostics, Nutrition, Wildlife Diseases, Release Conditioning, Pharmacology, Fluid Therapy and much more. Students interested in veterinary medicine and wildlife biology will find this internship as a perfect fit, as we can provide hands-on experience with many species of wildlife that can be difficult to find in many veterinary programs. Interns can expect to receive a Certificate of Completion and personalized Letter of Recommendation after 200 hours and completion of coursework materials.

Interns can apply by emailing both a resume and Cover Letter to our Wildlife Rehabilitation Coordinator at Patrick@coastwildlife.org
