Sunset Zoo Corps

About Zoo Corps

Zoo Corps volunteers are adults, 18 and older, who care about their local zoo and want to help out in their community. As a volunteer, you’ll have the opportunity to promote the Zoo with your passion, help with special events and engage in lifelong learning.

This program is an entry point for all adult Sunset Zoo volunteers; for those seeking opportunities to interact with the animal collection, consider Animal Handling Training after you complete your Zoo Corps training.
