Volunteer & Docent Positions

If you are enthusiastic about wildlife and enjoy interacting with people of all ages then you belong in the Palm Beach Zoo! (As a volunteer, that is!)

The Palm Beach Zoo Volunteer team is comprised of dedicated people from all across the country who are passionate about conservation! No matter where your talents lie we have an opportunity for you.

We have a wide array of opportunities throughout the zoo from helping care for our animals to office help; we can use your skills. The Palm Beach Zoos mission is to protect wildlife and wildlife habitat, and to inspire others to value and conserve the natural world.

Through your help we can make that difference! We have several volunteer programs ranging from our up and coming Youth Volunteer Corps (YVC) launching January 2013 to our adult programs, each with its own benefits and rewards. You will find all the volunteer opportunities below. We hope you join our team and thank you in advance for your interest in volunteering for the Palm Beach Zoo!
