EDUCATION VOLUNTEERS AT ZOO ATLANTA

Education Volunteers interact with Zoo guests to help share our mission and vision of saving wildlife and their habitats. If you have a passion for conservation, biology, or environmental science, this is the volunteer opportunity for you!

Education Volunteers work directly with the Education Department at Zoo Atlanta, supporting programs such as:

  • Giraffe Feeding Assistance: assist at the exit gate of the feeding area and answer guest questions about the experience.
  • Zoo Seekers: facilitate the check-out and return of exploration packs that guests use to participate in this self-guided program.
  • Zoo Exploration Days/Education Events: facilitate activities focused on a themed event day that highlights different aspects of Zoo Atlanta’s mission (i.e. conservation, research, animal care, education/engaging experiences).
  • Pop-up Activities: facilitate quick and simple activities with small groups of guests. These activities are not on the map and require little prior Zoo knowledge to facilitate.
  • Administrative Support: assist the Public Programs Team with administrative tasks such as data entry, scanning documents, and preparing materials for programs and events.
  • Habitat Interpretation: answer questions from guests and share biological and conservation information on the animals.Informational materials will be provided for Volunteers.

This is a great way to meet new people, have fun and help educate others about topics that are important to you.
