Ambassadors interact with Zoo visitors sharing information and enthusiasm about the zoo with our guests. They are stationed in our Wallaby, Budgie, and Red's Hobby Farm exhibits engaging guests to touch the animals and encourage a conservation ethic. Shifts are anywhere from 2 hours to as many as 8. You can choose how much time you want to be here and how often. We'd like volunteers to consider giving 10 or more hours each month.
