MARS is looking for student wildlife rehabilitation volunteers to join our team! These positions are on a rotating basis throughout the year, and we welcome students from all over the world. Positions typically range from 4-16 weeks in length, depending on space available and the time of year. Students will be provided with basic housing and amenities and will be trained to work with many different species of both birds and mammals during their time here! During your stay at MARS, you will be taught and will be responsible for cleaning animal enclosures, feeding and medicating our wild patients, participating in wildlife rescue and releases, attending vet visits, providing enrichment for our patients and ambassadors, and more.
