    The Summer Teen Internship program has undergone some very extensive and positive changes that will interest and challenge teens of all ages.

    The three week program will help teens answer the following questions:

    1. How did the idea of the modern zoo come to fruition?

    2. What role do zoos play in today’s society?

    3. Where will zoo institutions go from here?

    This year, teens will:

  • Engage in various forms of technology made available by a recent working partnership between the Encyclopedia of Life and the Wildlife Conservation Society
  • Take trips to the New York Botanical Garden will help teens indentify the dynamics between flora and fauna within the web of life.
  • Learn about the “evolution of evolution”
  • Construct electronic field guides with the help of EOL’s iNaturalist© and Ecosytem Explorer © software
  • Develop futuristic models for zoo exhibits using Google Sketch-up!
  • And last but not least, participants will get to experience what it’s like to be a zoo keeper by helping to complete various animal care-related tasks at select exhibit sites around the Bronx Zoo campus.

    This summer’s program has a little bit for everyone, and much more!
