Become a Member of Our TCWR Alumni Program!

Thank you for all of your hard work and dedication during your internship at Turpentine Creek Wildlife Refuge. And thank you also for the loving care and respect you afforded our animal residents during that time! You were among the brightest and most qualified of the hundreds of applicants we interviewed for acceptance into our animal care internship program, and we hope that you will continue to use your educational background and TCWR experience to go on advocating for animals throughout your personal and professional life.

2018 Interns

So much good is possible, but we cannot bring this vision to life without your help. Because of your passion and dedication for the animals at Turpentine Creek Wildlife Refuge, we would like to offer you the opportunity to continue to advocate for them by joining or renewing your membership to our alumni program! By becoming an official TCWR Alumni Member through an annual tax-deductible donation of $65 you will keep in touch with the animals you came to love, and learn about the exciting new programs and projects at the Refuge.

Please join us today, and together we can put an end to the Exotic Pet Trade and ensure that these survivors live out the rest of their lives in the care and safety of a GFAS accredited sanctuary like Turpentine Creek Wildlife Refuge.
