Internship Program Funding

Since its inception, the Internship program has exploded in popularity. The program not only supports the North American Bear Center’s core mission of advancing the long-term survival of black bears, but offers hands-on experience to top-achieving college students. Interns learn bear care and bear behavior as well as research and presentation skills. The North American Bear Center accepts ten to twelve interns each year and provides them with housing and a stipend upon completion of internship. Your donation helps us continue and grow our internship program; but, most importantly, it helps the young minds that are preparing for their future positions.

The North American Bear Center is a 501(c)(3) non-profit and we rely solely on visitor admissions, retail sales, and the generosity of donors and members who believe in our mission. We do not receive any state or federal funding and your donation may be tax deductible.

Here’s what one of our previous Interns had to say about her experience:

“My time as an intern at the North American Bear Center was absolutely amazing and a once in a lifetime experience. I learned so much, not only about bears and their care-taking, but other important leadership and speaking skills. The center is a wonderful environment filled with some of the best people and they make you feel like family. This experience has only benefitted me for the future because I have learned more about what direction I would like my career to focus on”. Overall it was fantastic!
