Zoos SA volunteers have a love of animals and the natural world and also have a love of people. There’s many fun and exciting opportunities for all interests; whether they be working with the public or behind the scenes with plants and animals, independently or in groups, or on weekdays or weekends.
Being a volunteer enables you to work in an amazing environment with friendly, like-minded people. You’ll gain knowledge, develop skills and know you are very much appreciated.
It’s important to understand in most cases volunteer activities do not involve contact with animals and volunteers do not assist zoo keepers with animal care or veterinary staff with the health and wellbeing of the animals.
To become a volunteer you must:
- 18 years of age;
- Agree to a National Police Check;
- Be a current financial member of the zoo;
- Commit to a minimum of one day per month.
