Applications accepted November - March
Interpreter volunteers share information regarding animals and engage with guests about conservation issues and the impact humans have on the environment. Our goal is to inspire action and create change. Stationed at habitat clusters throughout the Zoo including Rocky Coast, Streamside, Cypress Swamp, Prairie, Desert, Aviary, Primate, and the Watani Grasslands, these volunteers use the Zoo’s living collection and biofacts such as feathers, skulls, pelts, and eggs to enhance the conversation.
Time Commitment: Seasonal opportunity. March – mid November, Sunday – Saturday, 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. Volunteers are asked to commit to a minimum of two scheduled shifts each month, completing a minimum of 70 hours.
