Join us as an Education Intern at Wildlife Images and help inspire the next generation of Animal Advocates!
At Wildlife Images we are dedicated to fulfilling our mission of Saving Wildlife through Involving, Educating and Inspiring people. Our Wildlife Academy offers programs for all ages beginning with our cornerstone day camp, Camp EEK. Each year this program sells out and parents beg to be bumped up on the wait list so their children can experience the magic of place-based environmental education. We allow children to go WILD for the summer as they hang out with Animal Ambassadors, play games, make cool crafts and explore the outdoors. Camp EEK! at Wildlife Images provides a safe and engaging place for kids to experience hands-on learning centered on wildlife, nature, and conservation. Each week is themed with a unique curriculum that highlights the wonders of the natural world.
