Volunteering

We offer three ways to volunteer at the Bronx Zoo. As a seasonal Discovery Guide, you'll answer questions about animals, direct visitors around the zoo, assist with birthday parties, and run selected children's activities in the zoo. Field Trip Specialists work alongside our Conservation Educators to help facilitate school programs conducted at the zoo. As a year-round Friend of the Zoo (FOZ), you'll serve as an interpreter at animal exhibits, lead tours, interact with families at Discovery Stations, and help at special events.
