Are you thinking of Volunteering at Taronga?

Come along to one of our Information Sessions and find out more about the variety of roles available for volunteers, what they require, and how to apply. 

Our roles available are as varied as the people who apply, attending this session will help you choose the right role and understand the recruitment process better.

Note:  You can apply for an advertised volunteer role without attending an information session, these are purely for us to chat to you about available opportunities and assist in the application process.  Don't miss out on applying for a current Volunteer opportunity by waiting for the next session!

Our current vacancies can be viewed here. New roles are added all the time so check back regularly.

These sessions are for volunteering for 18yrs+. For youth volunteering (13yr-19yr)see our YATZ program:  Youth At The Zoo - YATZ!
