The North Carolina Zoo is actively recruiting volunteers, according to Toy Lambeth, volunteer services coordinator. “Volunteering is an exciting and unique way to explore your interests while helping the zoo,” says Lambeth. “Our volunteers are essential in sharing information about the zoo’s plants and animals and inspiring guests to make a difference in the conservation of wildlife and wild places."

North Carolina Zoo volunteers serve nearly 40,000 hours annually, devoting their time, skills, knowledge and expertise to serving as the frontline faces of the zoo. Volunteers greet guests, assist with special events, plant and maintain gardens, answer phones, serve as Giraffe Deck attendants, care for injured and orphaned animals at the zoo’s wildlife center, and more.

North Carolina Zoo volunteers come from a variety of backgrounds and bring a wealth of experience. Youth ages 12-15 may volunteer in most positions along with a parent or legal guardian, and independently from age 16.

To learn more about volunteering at the zoo, visit www.nczoo.org/volunteer and complete an online application to receive information about orientation and training dates. Or, contact Lambeth, at toy.lambeth@nczoo.org.
