The Pocatello Zoo is looking to recruit a round of new adult volunteers for the 2016 season.
Zoo staff will host an information session on the volunteer job March 8 at 5 p.m. at the zoo administration office located at 3101 Avenue of the Chiefs. During the open house, volunteer candidates will have the chance to ask questions, fill out the zoo volunteer application, and learn more about the different ways to give back to the zoo.
“Our volunteers serve as advocates for the wildlife that call the zoo and Idaho home,” said Cory Coffman, Curator of Education. “Whether you have experience with wild animals or not, all we ask is that you have an interest in wildlife, are an avid learner, and care about your community.”
Volunteers are often called upon to fill various roles at the zoo. Opportunities range from working in the wildlife theater programs to event helpers working at the many events throughout the zoo’s season to maintenance/construction hands building or renovating the zoo’s 30 exhibits.
New volunteers are required to complete the volunteer application and waiver form and pay a training fee to be accepted into the program. New volunteers must also attend the training days that will be held March 29 to 31 from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m.
A youth volunteer information session is tentatively scheduled for May 10 at 5 p.m.
