Get Involved! Adult Volunteer Orientation to be held at Birmingham Zoo

The Birmingham Zoo is actively seeking Adult Volunteers as a fun and exciting way for the community to get involved. Volunteers play a vital role in Zoo operations. At the Zoo, volunteers serve at the Kiwanis Giraffe Encounter, Schaeffer Eye Center Lorikeet Aviary, and in many other necessary roles. Individuals who are interested in applying are asked to visit the Volunteer page on the Zoo’s website, to fill out an application. Orientations are open to all applicants and are held monthly. The next scheduled orientation is set for February 5, from 9am-4pm.

Adult Volunteer orientation begins with icebreakers and helps familiarize applicants to the Birmingham Zoo and the many amazing volunteer opportunities. Volunteer applicants also get to learn about guest engagement and get an introduction into the volunteer training structure.

“The Birmingham Zoo is thankful to the many volunteers who serve the Zoo and help make it the top Zoo in the state. We would not be able to educate as many people without the support of our volunteers. We hope you will come and join us as we strive to Inspire Passion for the Natural World,” says Birmingham Zoo Vice President, Education, Roger Torbert.
