General Volunteer Opportunities

volunteer opportunities like Zoobilation are available at Seneca Park zoo

The Zoo has enriching and exciting volunteer opportunities for people with 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, guests return and ultimately decide to become members of the Zoo.

Volunteer Opportunities

We have a variety of volunteer opportunities throughout the year.

There is a fee of $20 due upon acceptance to participate in the Seneca Park Zoo volunteer program. This fee covers the cost of:

  • Volunteer t-shirt
  • Name tag
  • Training class
