Volunteers are very important to the zoo. Thank you for your interest in volunteering. We want you to have a great experience while here at the zoo.
We like to have fun at the Abilene Zoo. Our special events are fundraising events to keep the zoo operating. Applications for events are accepted year-round.
Support the zoo during special events, fundraisers, and community outreach programs. This is a fantastic opportunity to contribute to a great cause and be part of a memorable experience. As an event volunteer, you play a crucial role in ensuring the success of the event. Our events take place outdoors, so volunteers will need to be able to work in variable inclement weather conditions. Our online event volunteer sign-up is sent via email once you are on our list.
Assist the animal staff in caring for animals and providing behavioral enrichment
Please note: Due to strict guidelines and safety issues, direct interaction with animals is extremely limited.
The Abilene Zoo is a place of learning and adventure, where families make memories, share the joy of discovery, and become inspired to preserve wildlife.
