Volunteer & Internships

 

JOIN THE ZOO CREW!

If you like working with animals and people, then the Volunteer or Internship Programs at Lazy L Safari Park may work for you.  Volunteers and interns must be at least 18 years of age and meet certain requirements.  

We are looking for participants who are enthusiastic and willing to learn.  No experience necessary - training is provided.  

Note:  In Spring 2013, we started a Jr. Volunteer Program for children ages 9 - 17 years of age. Volunteers must have completed our Jr. Zookeeper course which is offered every summer at Lazy L Safari Park through the Horizons Program of SEMO University in order to participate in this program.  Please contact us for more information on becoming a Jr. Volunteer at the zoo!
 

VOLUNTEER PROGRAM

Volunteers at the zoo are needed for a variety of services including, but not limited to, being a tour guide, maintenance, cleaning, landscaping, building exhibits, and helping with special events at the zoo.  Volunteers are also needed to help with educational programs such as camps, classes, and workshops held at the zoo.  A few select volunteers may be trained to help with educational talk presentations and animal rides.

All volunteers will receive free admission and a Zoo Crew T-Shirt to wear while volunteering at the zoo.  

To be a volunteer involves a time commitment and reliability.  All volunteers must attend a Volunteer Orientation Meeting & Training Meeting(s) for their appropriate job.  Volunteers provide a helping hand to the zoo staff and are greatly appreciated!
