Keeper trainees are needed daily to help take care of the animals (tigers, bears, lemurs, birds, etc). You will prepare food for the animals, assist with feeding, clean enclosures, provide enrichment, general maintenance, yard work and cleanup. Opportunities to grow into Certified Keepers exist!

When you leave for the day, you will be hot, sweaty, dirty, exhausted, and exhilarated that you have played an instrumental part in the lives of these beautiful animals.

This position requires a commitment of at least 1 day (4-6 hours) per week, starting at 9 a.m. And remember, volunteer hours and mileage are tax deductible! Volunteers are sorely needed for Monday-Friday.

Volunteer applications can be found on our website -
