Lee County -- Twelve college students traveled more than 250 miles for a six-week zookeeping internship at the Parks at Chehaw.

The students are seniors at Pensacola Junior College in Florida.

They came to Albany to complete a course in Animal Care Technology that will count towards their degrees in zookeeping.

Chehaw is an accredited facility for technical learning.

This is the first time they've offered the internship.

The students will participate in one of six projects.

"We are trying to target train these guys to help Chehaw out with procedures such as veterinary medicine," said Brad Franklin, Pensacola Junior College Student.

"The projects we are doing but they may have taken a little bit longer if we didn't have this added help of these skilled workers," said Anne Grinnan, Chehaw's Education Specialist.

The students will be here until April 25th.
