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.
11/23/2013 UPDATE: THE ZOO WILL BE PUTTING NEW VOLUNTEER ORIENTATIONS ON HOLD FOR THE HOLIDAY SEASON. Our new volunteer orientations will resume in February and will run from February through September monthly on the last Wednesday of the month. Orientations will begin at 7pm, after the regular zoo volunteer meeting.
