Taronga Conservation Society
With more than 600 volunteers performing over 40 different roles across our zoos, Taronga’s Volunteer Programs enable people from all backgrounds, experience levels and expertise to experience the magic of Taronga by contributing to our mission of securing a shared future for wildlife and people.
In order to join Taronga’s Volunteer Program, you must:
- Be 18 years old or over
- Be a Zoo Friends Member and pay a $25 administration fee*
- Have or be able to get a valid NSW Working With Childrens Check
- Be able to commit to the requirements of the role (usually 12 months at one day per week or 1 day per fortnight)
- Be able to complete e-learning units and induction prior to starting role
*Please do not pay for your Zoo Friends membership until you have been accepted as a Volunteer.
Please note: our Volunteer programs are not suitable for people requiring work placement to complete courses or degrees and due to the training and investment Taronga provides our Volunteers, our programs are unsuitable for short term volunteering.
