Student Opportunities at the Cape Wildlife Center
Each year, the Cape Wildlife Center accepts about 20 veterinary and undergraduate students in their Professional Training Program. Under the supervision of the staff veterinarian, wildlife rehabilitator and veterinary technician, the students are involved in the husbandry, rehabilitation, and medical care of each wildlife patient admitted.
Student interns help with a wildlife release at the center.
