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 the Docent programs or Animal Handling Training after you complete your Zoo Corps training.

Training Sessions

Training sessions are offered twice each year, typically in the fall and spring. The next scheduled training dates are Sunday, April 8th and 15th from 1 to 5 pm. Attendance at both training sessions is mandatory. Please fill out the online volunteer application form before attending the training.

Application & Registration Fee

There is a $10 registration fee and preregistration is required by completing the online volunteer application form.
