    Hi guys,

    I've just completed my MSc in Primate Conservation and I currently have no experience caring for captive primates. I think it's something that would be really valuable to me, however I know it's popular!
    I'm looking for any recommendations of which zoos offer good placements, especially maybe lesser known zoos or wildlife parks where they might not be booked up so far in advance!

    Any suggestions would be appreciated, I am creating a big list of where offers placements and ticking them off as I enquire or apply :)

    I completed a 12 week internship at Chimps Inc. in Oregon, and could not recommend it highly enough. It costs $100 a week including housing on-site. Please feel free to message me if you'd like questions answered. :) Congrats on finishing your Masters!
