The Amarillo Zoo is in need of animal-loving individuals seeking a fun, new way to give back to the community. There are three ways to get involved with the zoo:

Zoo Volunteers- Ages 16 and up, we are seeking individuals with outgoing personalities who love animals and who wish to spread the message of conservation to those around them. The Zoo Crew assists in various education stations around the zoo, speaking with zoo guests, assisting in programs, animal care, special events, zoo maintenance and much more!
