Zoo Volunteers


Knowledgeable Zoo Volunteers, with keen interests in wildlife, conservation, education, and children, deliver tours and Outreach Programs. Volunteers complete a ten-week training course and write an exam before they become eligible to present educational programs. Many professions are represented in our volunteer group, including former teachers.
