Volunteer

Volunteer applications for 2021 are open.

The Zoo is open with modifications in place to encourage physical distancing and reduce the risk of community spread of COVID-19. If you are looking for a rewarding volunteer opportunity where you can spend time outdoors, we are currently accepting applications.

Every year volunteers contribute thousands of hours to the Park and Zoo. Volunteers come from all walks of life and enjoy rewarding volunteer experiences that recognize their unique skills and interests. New opportunities will be available in 2021 with the opening of brand new exhibits and experiences!

We offer flexible schedules and a welcoming environment that recognizes the essential role volunteers play in our organization. Comprehensive and ongoing training will take place on site and virtually adhering to COVID-19 protocols.

Volunteers Will:

  • learn new skills
  • meet new people
  • support a wide range of activities
  • contribute to the exciting growth at Assiniboine Park and Zoo

Volunteers Do Not:

  • feed or handle animals
  • work with plants

Volunteers Must:

  • make a long-term commitment - we do not offer one-time or short-term opportunities
  • be prepared to walk and stand outdoors (accommodations can be made - our Zoo is mobility aid friendly)
