Mission Statement

The North Carolina Zoo protects wildlife and wild places and inspires people to join us in conserving the natural world.


The North Carolina Zoo is nestled on 2,600 wooded acres centrally located in the heart of North Carolina, just south of Asheboro in Randolph County. With 500 developed acres, it is the world's largest natural habitat zoo. Conservation is at the heart of everything that we do. From vultures and gorillas in Africa to endangered plants and amphibians in our own state, the NC Zoo has been involved with the conservation of animals in the wild for over two decades.

Volunteers donate their time, talents, and skills augmenting and enhancing the work of Zoo staff, enabling the North Carolina Zoo to expand its scope of programs and projects. While experience can be helpful, it isn’t a requirement. Our professional staff are committed to helping Volunteers succeed by providing the tools, resources and training necessary! We are looking for people with availability and a desire to make a difference in the plight of wildlife and wild places.
