Want to work more closely with the animals? This year-round program offers individuals the opportunity to take part in some of the zoo’s day-to-day activities, like feeding, observing and handling animals and cleaning exhibits. There are also opportunities for giving demonstrations and helping out at our special events. This position is for a volunteer interested in a longer commitment and requires training. Interested persons must be approved by the Volunteer Coordinator prior to attending any Zoo Crew orientations.

All Zoo Crew members must:

  • Be at least 16 years old
  • Complete the required application, orientation and training
  • Pass a TB and background check
  • Commit to a minimum of two shifts per month for at least 6 months
  • Be able to follow directions precisely and work independently
  • Be in good physical shape—able to lift 25 pounds, walk, stoop, reach overhead and traverse uneven surfaces.
  • Pass the pre-screenings and receive a personal invitation to join the Zoo Crew training

Please be aware that the Zoo Crew application process can take several weeks, and volunteer orientation only occurs every 3 months. You will be contacted about your status once your application has been processed.
