I was an intern at Zovargo for six months and it was one of the most rewarding and challenging experiences of my life. Founders Amanda and Larry put their all into every Zovargo program, and they put the same amount of effort into helping their interns improve. Through Zovargo, I learned to be comfortable in front of a crowd, present information in an engaging way, and to handle and care for a wide variety of animals. I think their internship is the best opportunity in San Diego for people who want to become educators and have a passion for animals and conservation.

I was first drawn to Zovargos internship program because of the work they do with animals. While I have enjoyed working with all of the animal ambassadors, I have also gained so much knowledge as to how I can educate others about these animals and the ways people can help these animals in return. Its a great feeling to know that you have helped others learn about animals and conservation and that they might spread that knowledge even further.

Absolutely loved Zovargo for our Brownie troop! Amanda, Larry and David were so good with our girls! They brought the perfect animals and even got the girls out of their comfort zone and holding a scorpion. I would highly recommend Zovargo and already are planning our next patch with them!

Zovargo hosted a birthday party for my 8 year old twins and their friend. They were outstanding and I would recommend them highly. There were at least 4 hosts and they all did an excellent job keeping the kids entertained and engaged while they presented animals. All our guests loved it!
