Teens are the present, and I respect those who go out of their way to help youth in their community. It's such an inspiration! Share your stories at youthnoise.com to show how you've made efforts for social change and inspire other youth around the world. More power to ya for stepping up!

The keepers at Coyote Point are very conscientious and caring toward the animals. They are also very friendly and grateful to have volunteers, and will answer any and all questions about the animals and try to educate volunteers about the animals. Being a Wildlife Aid at CP has been a pleasure. I love to see that behind the scenes, the animals are getting amazing care and cognitive stimulation through enrichment.

Volunteering at Coyote Point Museum has definitely been one of the greatest experiences I have ever been involved in. At CPM, the staff, the volunteers, and even the animals are one close-knit family. You will never feel pressured to do something you don't want to do. There are so many benefits to volunteering at CPM. You get to meet wonderful people who share the same passion for animals and the enviroment. Learning about the animals and teaching the visitors are just some of the great things you get to do. You can also get to know some other animals on a more intimate level by learning to handle them. If you love animals, and love to work with amazing people, Coyote Point is right for you.
