CARROLL COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI)—Interns at the Wildcat Creek Wildlife Center are wrapping up their summer internships.

The interns are chosen from all over the country. Interns this year came from Michigan, Indianapolis, Ohio, South Carolina, and Pennyslvania. 

They are required to do anything from vaccinating animals to feeding baby raccoons.

The Wildcat Creek Wildlife internship gives students a rigorous educational experience.

The center typically has between 7-12 interns each semester.

Past interns like Jake Stille, from Bloomington, Illinois and a graduate of Univeristy of Illinois, received a job offer at Wildcat Creek Wildlife Center as an educational director after his internship last year.

Stille said he learned so much and is glad that he can put what he learned to work.

Other interns like 23-year-old Courtney Pitts (third on the right in the photo) of South Carolina said you create new friendships during the experience as well.

“One of our interns just recently left. Even though we only spent two months with her we all cried when she left,” said Pitts.

Pitts comes from the University of South Carolina Upstate and majors in Biology. 

22-year-old Emily Centogant (second on the left in the photo) from Michigan said the experience you receive at Wildcat Creek Wildlife is unlike any other.

“The veterinarian experience you get in terms of how to handle different animals looks really good for veterinarian school,” said Randolph. “So I was really interested.”

Centogant comes from Manchester University and majors in Biology-Chemistry. 

Wildcat Creek Wildlife Center also serves interns from all over the world. They will welcome an intern from the United Kingdom this fall.

22-year-old Jewel Randolph (third on the left in the photo) comes Pennsylvania's University of Findlay and majors in Animal Science Pre-vet Emphasis. 

22-year-old Stephanie Wiles (middle in the photo) comes from Indianapolis' IUPUI and majors in Biology. 

22-year-old Malena Radeva (second on the right in the photo) comes from Ohio and will further her education in grad school at the University of Bristol in England. There she will major in Global Wildlife Health and Conservation.
