Zoo Interpretive Program (ZIP)
Do you love animals? Want to help zoo visitors connect to their favorite critters in a fun, informal setting? Sequoia Park Zoo is getting ready to launch the 2015 ZIP program and we need YOU!

What you’ll get: You’ll be a part of fun-filled education sessions where you’ll learn about our animals, their behind-the scenes stories, and the basics of zoo interpretation. Want to know where Cheyenne (our new bald eagle) ended up in our zoo? How to tell decode flamingo mating behaviors? Learn how red pandas are different from giant pandas? This is the program for you! You’ll also be in the Zoo’s inside loop and be eligible for ongoing training opportunities as well as the first to know about zoo news & events.

Time Commitment: ZIP is one of our most flexible volunteer options. All we ask is that you sign up for at least two 2-hour shifts (11:00-1:00 pm, 2:00-4:00 pm) per month (ideally, but not limited to, weekends). You can work with the volunteer coordinator to set your own schedule and training program.

How to join: RSVP to ten.o1427358223ozkra1427358223paiou1427358223qes@r1427358223eetnu1427358223lov1427358223 for the next orientation to learn more about the program and the basics on ZIP. After your orientation you’ll be able to put what you learned into action as a Zoo interpreter!
