Internship Experiences

My experience as an intern at the Detroit Zoo is rewarding and highly essential to my growth as a biological professional. I am in the mammal department so every two weeks I go to a new rotation. By the end of the summer I will have shadowed keepers at seven exhibits. So far I have taken care of and interacted with giraffes, rhinos, zebras, common elands, warthogs, fallow deer, gorillas, chimps, lemurs, camels, elk, and barn animals like horses, yaks, cows, pigs and donkeys. The interns work together on enrichment for the animals, so I have also gotten the chance to interact with red-eyed tree frogs on an amphibian enrichment day. There are certain animals I've bonded with that I never would have considered to be one of my "favorite animals." It is a hard job and demands hours of physical labor, yet I've never felt more in my element at a job site than I do while working with the exotic animals that I've grown to care for so much. - Alexis Schefka, LSSU Conservation Biology major

Student Research...

Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario

David evaluated the abundance and condition of deep-water Siscowet lake trout in commercial management areas of Canadian waters in Lake Superior. His findings determined the current status of Siscowet populations in northern Lake Superior and might help establish harvest quotas for the possible establishment of a Siscowet commercial fishery.
