About Wildlife World Zoo Inc.
There are eight areas in which to volunteer: hoof stock, birds and primates, reptiles, small mammals, ponds and carnivores, the aquarium, education and the Americas. Large carnivores and the baby animal nursery are excluded from the volunteer program due to obvious liability. One volunteer is assigned to each keeper per day. Reptiles, small mammals, and the aquarium are mostly indoors, the remaining areas are outdoors. Volunteers working in outside areas must be capable of working in all weather conditions including temperatures above 100°F. Aquarium volunteers wanting to dive must first complete at least 64 hours of service. All divers must be open water certified and will have to complete a check out dive to qualify. Volunteers are never put in situations or required to perform any job with which they are not comfortable. Due to potential health risks, pregnant volunteers must notify staff and will be reassigned as necessary.
