Volunteering at Zoodoo
Zoodoo Volunteer Squad
Our volunteers play a vital role in supporting our work and helping us to achieve our purpose to connect people with nature and save species from extinction.
Volunteering for Zoodoo is a wonderful opportunity to make a lasting contribution to our important wildlife conservation advocacy work while helping the zoo and its unique animal residents. Volunteers also experience some amazing moments, make new friends and create life-long memories.
Our volunteers love the outdoors, animals and interacting and engaging with people. Our generous volunteers contribute across our zoos through a range of people-facing and behind the scenes roles. Oftentimes they are the public face of the zoo and key connectors with guests to our animal and conservation stories.
As a volunteer you’ll gain knowledge, develop skills and use the skills and experiences you already posses, to contribute positively to our Zoo programs.
Please note: Most of our roles involve providing an enhanced visitor experience by interacting directly with our guests. There are elements of observing animals, guest surveys and assisting in keeping the zoo site presentable and welcoming for guests.
To become a volunteer you must:
- Be 16 years of age to apply.
- Commit to a weekly shift of minimum 4-6 hours over 10 weeks so you can remain engaged and up-to-date with our organisation.
- Have your own email address and are comfortable or willing to learn, to use smart phones, tablets or PCs to access email, so you can use our online roster system, e-learning and access communication updates.
- Undertake our volunteer training and agree to act in accordance with our values, policies, procedures and processes.
We are seeking passionate, committed, curious, adaptable, positive & cheerful people who desire to serve our organisation as volunteers.
To become a part of Zoodoo Volunteer Squad you will need to book an induction and training course held Fridays and Saturdays - see online checkout to book your attendance.

Printer cartridges are made up of a complex mix of plastics, metal, inks and toners and thus represent a significant investment in resources.

This program collects and returns cartridges for remanufacturing and recycling.
