Meet Our New Interns!

We are very excited to announce that we have three new Interns!

Stryker is REALLY looking at Becky!
Our first Intern, Rebecca Suzenski hails from West Suffield, CT and she started her Internship with us on May 11, 2012!   Becky is pursing a degree in Captive Wildlife Care and Education from Unity College, graduating May 2013.  Becky completed an internship at the Southwick's Zoo where she took part in all aspects of animal care and facility maintenance. She also volunteered at the Second Chance Ranch mucking stalls. She has worked at 'On Target Miniatures' where she participated in the breeding, training and medical care of the animals. She would like to be a big cat keeper one day.  Her well-rounded experience will certainly be a plus for us!  Two lion paws up and a Sabu mighty roar of welcome to you, Becky!

Kazuri looks so handsome

Please welcome Sara Wilkes from Ohio as she began her Internship with us on May 13th!  Sara is pursing a degree in biology from Denison University and will graduate in the Spring of 2015! Sara has worked in the Sedgwick County Zoo as a volunteer for the past four years. She has over 940 hours of hands on experience working with animals. She is not afraid of hard work (that's a plus at In-Sync Exotics!!) and she wants to be a veterinarian at a sanctuary or zoo. Sara was able to work with zookeepers that taught her how to care for and respect animals. We are doubly blessed with an Intern with years of animal experience!  Two cougar paws up and a mighty Cerella yell of welcome to you, Sara!

Is Harley sticking out his tongue at Randi?
Silly tiger!
Howdy (Texas greeting) Randi Lesagonicz!  Randi is from Reading, PA and she started her Internship with us on May 15th.  Randi is pursing a degree in Wildlife Biology at the University of Montana and will graduate May 2014! She has worked with a variety of animals in a pet store and volunteered at the Missoula Humane Society. Randi had an opportunity to work alongside a zookeeper at the Philadelphia Zoo where she learned what it takes to care for exotic animals in a zoo environment and helped education of children on the animals under the zoo's care. Randi would like to eventually get her Masters in Wildlife Biology and conduct animal research on a variety of mammals.  Two tiger paws up and a mighty Okemo chuff  of welcome to you, Randi!

We are expecting two more Interns at the end of this month--so we will have a full-house very soon!

Our new interns went through a stringent application process before they were selected to participate in our Internship program.  Ever wondered what it takes to Intern at In-Sync?

Well, you:
  • Must be 18 years or older.
  • Must have completed or working towards a degree in an animal related field.
  • Must be of good health and physical endurance.
  • Must be able to lift 50 pounds.
  • Must be willing to work in all weather conditions, including extreme temperatures.
  • Must be willing to work 5-6 days a week, 40 - 50 hours per week, including one night for a minimum of 12 weeks. Extensions beyond the 12 weeks will be considered on an individual basis.
  • Must be willing to work weekends and holidays.
  • Must work well in a team environment.
  • Must be willing to listen and follow directions.
  • Must be responsible and willing to work hard.
  • Must love and respect animals (now that goes without saying, right?)

Wow!  We are very grateful for our Interns' passion to care for animals!  Animal care is a 24/7 day labor of love and it takes a lot of dedication and heart to take care of our animals--so welcome ladies to the In-Sync Exotics' family!  

If you are interested in becoming an In-sync Exotics' Intern, please visit our Intern web page HERE!  The deadline for our Fall Internship Session (September - November) is July 15th!  If you are interested in zoology, biology, or any of the other "olgies" degrees related to animal care, then this is the place to learn about exotic wild animal care!

So, when you come out to visit, be sure to say hello to our newest Interns.  In no time at all, they will be very proficient at exotic wild animal care and will be able to answer all your questions about our wild ones!
