Co-op and Field Placements

The Rideau Valley Wildlife Sanctuary offers co-op and work term placements for students, both short- and long-term. Opportunities often involve direct animal care, as described in the role of a wildlife rehabilitation intern, but can also be tailored to the needs of the student and their academic program. Please note that short-term placements do not receive an honorarium.
