With an internship with Animals, Science and Environment, you'll be responsible for the care and welfare of the animals across Walt Disney World® Resort properties, including those living at Disney's Animal Kingdom® Theme Park, Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge, Tri-Circle D Ranch and The Seas with Nemo & Friends® Pavilion at Epcot®.
