Job Description:

The American Bald Eagle Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit natural history museum and raptor center in Haines, Alaska. We are focused on wildlife and conservation education and outreach.

Every summer/fall we host an internship program that accepts four to six individuals from across the country. Interns have the opportunity to learn about raptors and the natural history of Southeast Alaska. This internship is for anyone who seeks a career working with wildlife and/or in conservation education. We offer hands-on experience in animal behavior, animal handling, avian enrichment, public speaking, community outreach and collaboration, and a possibility for some research.

Depending on prior experience and skill level, interns will learn how to train raptors via operant conditioning: positive reinforcement training. Interns also engage guests of all ages through natural history programs. They will learn about the many species of animals that occupy Southeast Alaska and they may have a chance to collect data with a local researcher in the area.
