The Creature Conservancy is always looking to add to its group of dedicated, animal loving volunteers.

Are we a good match...

Do you love creatures?

Are you reliable, responsible, and mature (aged 18 or over)?

Do you want to be part of a team that is caring and growing?

Do you believe you can give back to your community through animal conservation?

Then we would love to talk to you!

We are currently looking for:

Morning Animal Feeder:  You must have animal experience, and this is hard work, indoors and out.  It also requires constant attention to detail, but the personal rewards of working directly with the animals are too numerous to mention.

Evening Animal Feeder: Feeding and cleaning for the nocturnal birds and mammals is taken care of in the late afternoon/early evening. This position requires hard work and constant attention to detail, and is for the very reliable person who can commit to at least one afternoon/evening shift per week.

Director of Fundraising:  Our non-profit is staffed entirely by volunteers. Raising funds to care for the needs of the animals is vital to our Conservancy.  If you have skills in the areas of grant writing, donation raising, non-cash donations/procurements, bequests or honorariums, the animals (and we) need you!

Maintainer of Facilities and Enclosures:  We like our creatures to have all the comforts of home--complete with as much of their natural habitat and enrichment features as we can provide.  If you are handy with a hammer, we need you!

Horticulturist:  We need someone to organize, maintain, propagate plants such as palms, bamboos and bananas for a walk-through tropical plant and animal display. We are always looking for people to help our current volunteers plant and maintain an "edible yard" throughout our current landscaping.  Bring your creativity and sense of fun to this project!

Please contact us and let us know your experience, availability and goals in applying for a volunteer position.
