Event Volunteering

The Zoo needs lots of help from people like you who have some time to spare to a worthwhile cause.

Most people that want to volunteer at a Zoo usually hope to interact directly with the animals. While general volunteering does not involve the handling of our animals, we still need your help in creating an environment that welcomes our visitors and that enhances their experience. When you help us do this, visitors return and ultimately decide to become members of the Zoo.
