Would you like to learn what it takes to professionally work with animals? Consider attending a Zoo Career Counseling session.
Typically, sessions last about two hours. During the first hour, learn what educational path (high school and college) and experience (volunteering and internships) are necessary to pursue a career with animals. During the second hour, we spend time on the grounds and behind the scenes in areas like our nutrition center, veterinary clinic, and education center to understand how and where zoo professionals work.
Cost: Zoo members: $25 | Non-members: $30 (fee includes participating student and a parent/guardian if required)
*Note: we receive requests for multi-hour/day long job shadowing experiences at the Zoo. Due to limited staff availability and the challenges of individuals accompanying Zoo staff in restricted areas, we are only able to offer Career Counseling Sessions.
