Join the Zoo Team

Zoos SA is a charitable conservation society dedicated to the preservation of some of the world’s most threatened species. Its vision is to lead and achieve long-term conservation change through education, breeding and research programs at its world renowned sites, Adelaide and Monarto Zoos, and in the wild.

Adelaide Zoo, one of Adelaide’s most iconic attractions, is home to more than 2,500 animals and 250 species of exotic and native mammals, birds, reptiles and fish exhibited over eight hectares of magnificent botanic surroundings. It’s the second oldest zoo in the nation and represents a significant part of South Australia’s heritage.

Monarto Zoo is one of the largest open range zoo in the world spanning more than 1,500 hectares of fauna and flora. Monarto Zoo opened in 1983 as a closed special purpose breeding facility. Since officially opening to the public in October 1993, Monarto Zoo has evolved into a true biopark, representing a unique blend of a conservation and wildlife park. Its principle purpose is to provide a place for the conservation of Australian and exotic wildlife, public recreation and education.

Zoos SA represents an important part of South Australia’s heritage and social history with more than 30,000 members. Since Adelaide Zoo opened to the public in 1883, six generations of South Australians have passed through its gates.

Securing long term populations of species in natural ecosystems and habitats is one of the key aims of Zoos SA, and to do this the organisation works at a variety of levels, including maintaining insurance populations, educating the community, influencing policy, restoring habitat and protecting wild animal populations. Approximately 250 full, part time and causal staff members and more than 500 volunteers at our not-for-profit society work towards these goals.

Joining the Zoos SA team is unique and wonderfully fulfilling opportunity.
