Zoo Ambassadors

We have a fun volunteer opportunity this summer, a program we call Zoo Ambassadors!

Zoo Ambassadors will volunteer to help with the Zoo Quest game for one 4-hr shift per week from June 13 – August 30, 2015. The Zoo Quest is a fun scavenger hunt activity that engages young zoo guests and their families in exploring the impact of electronics on wildlife and the environment. Volunteers will run different hands-on learning stations around the Oregon Zoo to engage and deepen the guest experience.

This opportunity:

  • can be a family volunteer experience
  • is short term, July - August
  • is one 4-hr shift per week
  • requires 5 hours of training in June
  • is a much-needed help for the zoo
  • provides a chance to make a difference
  • has an age minimum of 10 years old with parent, 15 years old without parent.

Please note: The ZooAmbassador Program is full for the summer of 2015.

Program information for the summer of 2016 will be available in late March of 2016. Zoo Ambassadors that are 10-14 years old must volunteer with an adult such as a parent, relative, or family friend. The adult must also actively participate in the Zoo Ambassador program alongside the youth, including completing a Zoo Ambassador application and attend orientation, trainings and actively participate in the Zoo Ambassador program alongside the youth.

Get involved and help the Oregon Zoo make a difference!
