Wings of the Tropics has lots of unique opportunities for volunteers; from explaining the life cycle of our butterflies at the chrysalis chamber, to caring for and cultivating our beautiful tropical plants, volunteers help kids and adults experience the abundance of life in our rainforest!

About

At the Butterfly Pavilion, exhibit ambassador volunteers are the "backbone" (pun intended!) of our organization. They are the face of our invertebrate zoo, and they are vital to spreading our message of conservation. As an exhibit ambassador, you'll have the chance to give guests an unforgettable learning experience!

WHAT YOU WILL DO:
This is an opportunity for you to work in all of our exhibits - from helping guests pet our Madagascar Hissing Cockroaches, horseshoe crabs and sea stars, to teaching them about the life cycle of butterflies and digging in the dirt for worms. Our core volunteers must be able to commit to a weekly schedule and at least 16 hours a month.

BENEFITS:
- Flexible scheduling
- Training and support while you learn the ropes in each exhibit
- Fun educational and social activities
- Discounted membership and gift shop sales, and much more!
