Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens has a variety of opportunities for individuals who are able to dedicate at least 8 hours per month for a minimum of 6 months.
At Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens our goal is to create the most natural environment possible for our diverse collection of animals. For this reason, all volunteer positions are considered “hands-off” and do not involve direct handling of our animals. We encourage you to volunteer with us only if you are comfortable with this policy. We appreciate your understanding.
All positions are subject to availability; the Volunteer Engagement Department must select the position that fits both the volunteer’s interests and the needs of the Zoo. The Volunteer Engagement Department reserves the right to reject a prospective volunteer for any reason.
Volunteer department staff will be in touch with applicants about any next steps. Volunteers are on-boarded four times a year.
