Science and research volunteers conduct animal enrichment and animal watch and scientific procedures such as water testing. Enrichment volunteers are involved in the creation of enrichment devices for our animals and animal watch volunteers monitor Zoo animal behaviour.

This section of the zoo has recently undergone a restructure, therefore will not be recruiting for new volunteers in the near future.

Taronga has developed a learning and experience intership program, this program will replace education volunteers for 2013/14.

We will be running the course again in the second 6 months of 2014.
Enrolments are open now for this 2014 course.
