This practicum is designed for students to gain experience in potential fields of future employment working with animals. Students will apply knowledge from previous coursework in Applied Animal Biology to careers in wildlife rehabilitation, animal shelter management, research and farm animal management.

In addition to the practicum opportunities described below, students are encouraged to seek and develop practicum opportunities at other local animal shelters where supervisory support is available on-site. For example, a previous student created a practicum at WAGS, Whistler, following a volunteer experience with the organization. If a local shelter is willing to take on mentorship of a student, please contact Sara Dubois to discuss the practicum learning objectives.
