Wildlife Conservation Internship - White Oak Conservation

Author: Undrea Ferebee

Faculty Supervisor: C. Tate Holbrook, Ph.D.


For the summer of 2016, I participated in a wildlife conservation internship at White Oak Conservation.  This conservation center focuses on sustainable conservation breeding and educating themselves as well as the public on the importance of particular species and their survival in the wild. Interns at White Oak are able to have a hands-on animal care experience that includes animal husbandry, diet preparation, and proper handling of animals. My internship in particular was focused in the bird department, where I was able to work directly with several avian species during the breeding season.
