Volunteers at the Queens Zoo work within the Education Department to help provide memorable educational experiences for our guests. As a member of the team, you will teach visitors of all ages about zoo animals by delivering engaging information at exhibits, leading tours, and assisting with programs and special events.

As a Queens Zoo volunteer, you'll:

  • Teach schoolchildren and other zoo visitors about animals through chats at exhibit sites.
  • Give guided tours to groups in the zoo.
  • Assist instructors in the presentation of special programs.
  • Get involved in a variety of special events and zoo activities, including educational demonstrations and arts and crafts.
  • Meet like-minded individuals and become part of a community
  • Have fun!

At this time, we are not accepting volunteer applications. Please check back soon for volunteer opportunities or email us at qzvolunteers@wcs.org for more information.
