American Bald Eagle Foundation Internship Program
The American Bald Eagle Foundation (ABEF) operates a student internship program at its natural history museum and raptor center in Haines, Alaska. This program annually hosts three-five student interns from universities throughout the United States. The purpose of the program is to provide an educational, conservation oriented experience to undergraduate & graduate students majoring in an earth science or natural history related field. The ABEF internship program was established in 1999 and has trained 52 interns since its inaugural year. ABEF interns have established a prestigious record during those years and have gone on to successful careers in education, research, and employment. The ABEF takes great pride in its internship program and its interns. Those who work hard and are successful at being selected into the program can expect excellent prospects for their future regardless of their chosen endeavor. Students will work with the Raptor Curator Dr. Dan Hart and Raptor handler and trainer Brian Kurtzman and assist in the day to day care of our birds. ABEF internship students will learn to give interpretive natural history presentations regarding the flora and fauna of the Chilkat Valley specifically and Alaska in general.
