Internship Site: The Wild Center, Tupper Lake, NY
Emlyn first learned of The Wild Center during her time spent on SLU's Adirondack Semester program. This summer she is working as an Animal Care Intern, with duties including feeding the animals, providing enrichment for the animals, and giving tours to the public. "My favorite aspect of this internship is that we are able to provide homes for wild animals that have been injured and cannot be released. I think it is great that they can act as ambassadors for their species and that, by introducing them to the public, we can increase awareness and understanding of wild animals."
