About Zoo Knoxville

Zoo Knoxville is part of the collaborative efforts of AZA-accredited zoos and aquariums working to save animals from extinction. It is our mission to inspire our visitors to care about saving wildlife and wild places through experiences with animal ambassadors. New for 2018, Gibbon Trails and Langur Landing in Boyd Family Asian Trek immerses guests in a 360 degree experience with these aerial acrobats.


Red Panda/Program Animal Intern

June 2019 - August 2019 Knoxville, TN
“The program I worked under was amazing, the staff were wonderful and the work was rewarding. I learned a lot about many different animal species and found a love in the zoological field. ”

Digital Media Intern

June 2019 - August 2019 Knoxville, TN
“My supervisor, Amy, was very hands-on. She did an excellent job of reviewing my photography, telling me what was working and what wasn't, and helped give me tangible goals to work toward. She showed me the ins and outs of social media marketing and completely changed my perspective on what PR is. She gave me several opportunities to practice familiar skills and expand new ones. She was an inspiration to me and was very invested in helping me prepare for future employment. Plus, what's not to love about photographing animals?”
