The Orange County Zoo, located in Irvine Regional Park, is looking for volunteers to help with a variety of zoo activities. Volunteers are an important part of the zoo, whether it's assisting the regular Animal Keepers with cleaning the exhibits, preparing diets for the animals, giving guided zoo tours, providing educational programs or other activities. The Orange County Zoo has two types of volunteers, regular volunteers and docents.

Regular volunteers assist the zoo's Animal Keepers or work on needed projects throughout the zoo. Volunteers that assist the Animal Keepers help with cleaning exhibits, preparing diets and assisting with projects. Regular volunteers can also lend their talents in many other ways - staffing the Gift Shop, horticulture, photography, animal observation, construction, maintenance, painting, general facility repairs, and more.

Docents are the zoo's education volunteers. Docents assist in our Zoo Education Department by giving guided tours to school children, conducting story time programs, staffing Discovery Carts with various animal artifacts, helping with special events such as "Halloween at the Zoo" and "Christmas at the Zoo." Additionally Docents may conduct educational talks, handle reptiles, assist with off-site events, direct children's crafts, and much more! A training class and manual is provided for all docents.

All volunteers must be at least 18 years of age and training is provided.
