The mission of the Alaska Zoo is to connect people with animals. We do this by offering education programs to the community. We rely on volunteers to fulfill this mission.
Why should you volunteer?
How to get started: Complete our Volunteer Application (PDF) and submit to firstname.lastname@example.org. If your application passes the initial review, you will be contacted via email to attend a new volunteer orientation. (Submitting an application does NOT guarantee admittance into the volunteer program). New volunteer orientations are held between February and September at 7pm (after the regular volunteer meeting) on the last Wednesday of each month.
Opportunities include camp assistant, storyteller for programs, tour guide, hands-on program leader for events, petting zoo attendant, exhibit cleaning, special event booths, cotton candy spinning for events, monthly animal husbandry work.
