Volunteers and Interns within the education department are key players in the RMRP’s ability to provide conservation education about raptors. Inspiring young and old to care about and conserve these magnificent birds is the primary job of educational volunteers. Seeing the look of awe on a child’s face when they see an owl or hawk up close and in person is very rewarding.
Volunteers and interns will assist with formal and informal education and outreach events, merchandising and fundraising. Most volunteer positions will provide basic husbandry duties to care for permanently disabled ambassador raptors. Volunteers in the educational department will commit to specific shifts a month in advance. Please read the details of each position.
Education and Outreach Internship
We have a variety of intern opportunities in our education department. Each of these positions works to further the conservation education aspect of our mission. These internships are for the person which would like to accomplish a specific learning goal and has more time to commit than the Educational Volunteer position requires. Internships can be completed for school credit or for personal growth.
