Voluntary Work At Cairns Tropical Zoo
Volunteers are an important part of the team, and we welcome their involvement and enthusiasm.
People volunteer for many different reasons: work experience for school or uni, to learn what it’s like to be a zoo keeper, to gain experience to further their careers, or just for the personal satisfaction of their efforts.
There are many benefits to volunteer work. It’s a great way to show potential employers that you are hard-working, dedicated to giving back to the community, and to make a contribution. You will also learn more about the animals themselves. On top of all these reasons, it’s a fun and a rewarding way to spend your free time.
If you are 15 years of age or over, enthusiastic, dependable, friendly, out-going, interested in animals, and you enjoy working outdoors, you may be just what we are looking for.
Please note that all volunteer work is unpaid.
Please allow up to 10 days for an email reply.
Volunteer appointments are made on a trial basis. Continuance is entirely at the discretion of Cairns Tropical Zoo. Volunteers offered a continuance beyond 3 days are required to purchase and wear a volunteer uniform shirt (cost $20.00).
