The Friends of the National Zoo (FONZ) is recruiting interpreters to tell the stories of the amazing animals on the Asia Trail. Red pandas, Asian small-clawed otters, sloth bears, fishing cats, and the giant pandas are all featured along the Asia Trail.

Volunteers must apply and go through training (both on-line and in-person), and will be required to work at least three three-hour-long shifts each month for at least one year.

We will begin interviewing candidates in mid-October, and training begins in January 2017.
