Sunset Zoo Corps

About Zoo Corps

Zoo Corps volunteers are adults, 18 and older, who care about their local zoo and want to help out in their community. As a volunteer, you’ll have the opportunity to promote the Zoo with your passion, help with special events and engage in lifelong learning.

This program is an entry point for all adult Sunset Zoo volunteers. Zoo Corps members will have the opportunity to participate in additional in-person training opportunities each fall and spring. These optional continuing education courses for zoo volunteers focus on Animal Handling Training and Interpretation Techniques.
