The Conservation Teen Scientist program (CTS) provides high school students with valuable volunteer opportunities within Zoo Miami with a primary focus on visitor interpretation.

CTS team members increase their knowledge and awareness of environmental conservation and develop useful life skills while helping the Zoo convey conservation messages to visitors. Zoo instructors teach the CTS participants about current conservation and environmental issues and how zoos are helping to promote eco-literacy. CTS team members may also assist the Zoo at the Nutrition Center, Giraffe Feeding Station, Children's Zoo, and other areas.

Recruitment for CTS begins at the start of each school year from September to November. If interested, please contact the Volunteer Manager:

Application materials will be available on by the first week of September.
