    Hello all,

    I know this the oldest one in the books but I figured it was worth a shot. Who knows where I can find an internship?

    Before you judge, there's just no other way to phrase that question. I do know where to find them and I know they exist for good applicants--does anyone have particularly spectacular ones that they know of and advise applying to?

    For the specifics, I am a college freshman working on a major in wildlife conservation, and I'm looking for a summer internship. Paid would be nice, although I know that's often not possible, and I'm open to seasonal paid positions as well. I have a thorough interest in elephants, especially so because I spent a week at camp last summer at Busch Gardens Tampa working with the keepers and their elephants, but I am willing to do anything worthwhile. I have also worked with horses, at dog kennels, and in wildlife sanctuaries and keep a good academic record.

    If anyone has any advice, website links, etc. please let me know!

    Thank you,
