Our family of Zoo Hosts provides vital support services for the zoo staff. They make our visitors feel welcome and assist them in a number of ways, whether it's talking to them about the animals, giving walking tours, assisting keepers or other zoo staff with animal observations, cleaning or gardening.

They also enjoy being part of a fun volunteer team where they get to spend time with others who share their interests.

As a Volunteer Zoo Host, this is your opportunity to…

CONNECT people with wildlife experiences.
SHARE your people skills.
LEARN about the living world. 
ENJOY a stunning environment.
