Memphis Zoo and Aquarium

  • 14 people are interested

General opportunities available (i.e. clerical, opening of a new exhibit, seasonal exhibits, prepping animal diets, cleaning, etc.) require a commitment of one each week or two. Our General volunteers attend an orientation session, submit to a background check, and wear a uniform and badge while representing the zoo. Special events volunteering is an ongoing need -assist with the zoo's fundraisers from production work, ticket taking, arts and crafts supervising, etc. Our Special Events volunteers attend an orientation but do not have a weekly commitment as events are limited to a few times each year.

For more information visit the Memphis Zoo website or email us at volunteer@memphiszoo.org
