Volunteer at Brookfield Zoo

Thank you for your interest in serving the Chicago Zoological Society at Brookfield Zoo as a volunteer. We are so very grateful that you would like to share your time and talent celebrating animals and nature with our guests.

However, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we have suspended new volunteer recruitment until Fall 2022.


Please be sure to check back then for information about volunteer opportunities. On behalf of all of us at CZS, we hope you and your families are safe and stay well. Thank you for your support of Brookfield Zoo!

WORKING DIRECTLY WITH ANIMALS

Our volunteers do not handle animals, do not work directly with animals, and are not involved in animal husbandry. If you are interested in gaining hands-on experience working with animals for your career development, and are currently enrolled in a university degree program, consider our 12-week Internship Program. If interested, please visit the College Experiential Learning Opportunities (CELO) webpage at CZS.org/internships or send an e-mail to interns@czs.org.
