I worked at International Bird Rescue Research Center as an intern
The people here are incredible. The volunteers are truly the hands and feet of this organization and the dedication and compassion they show the animals is inspiring. I count myself lucky to have been able to contribute for a small portion of time.
Additionally, the unique knowledge I've gained is a life experience I am grateful for and I appreciate the time and care given by the staff towards my education in this field.
For a unique internship experience, IBR definitely fulfilled my expectations.
There is not much difference between interns and some of the more resident volunteers. If you live in this area and have time to spare, I would recommend committing to a volunteer position and you will likely learn just as much (if you put in the time). I came from out of state, so this was not an option.
