Teen Program

Do you have a passion for wildlife and the environment? Then we want to hear from you!

We are looking for 12-18 year olds to help shape the future of conservation. This program is not just about animals, but also how you can use your interests to make a positive impact. You will learn about wildlife, how to be a leader, presenting to audiences and much more! Please note, limited volunteer opportunities are available and not every applicant will be accepted.

While this program will not provide the opportunity to care for the animals, participants will meet staff and encounter animals in ways they may not have experienced before.

Age range: Students ages 12-18 (must be currently enrolled in school and may not have completed high school).

Application Information:

Applications are open from April 1 to June 1 annually. Prospective volunteers must submit both an application and two recommendation forms.
