The Assiniboine Park Zoo is excited to introduce a new volunteer position to assist groups coming to explore the zoo on their own – the Zoo Navigator.

Navigators are experienced zoo volunteers trained to support and enhance our zoo visitor’s experience. The Zoo Navigator will meet your group upon arrival and help you plan the best route and schedule for your day. The Navigator will stay with your group for the first hour, orienting you to the zoo, including lunch locations and best times to visit certain exhibits. Along the way the navigators will share their passion for the zoo with your group.

If you are interested in having a complimentary Zoo Navigator  for your visit to the zoo, please fill out this REQUEST FORM.

We will contact you via email to confirm if a Navigator is available. 
Navigators are assigned on a first come, first served basis
