San Diego Zoo Safari Park is looking for volunteers to serve as information ambassadors or work in some of the Safari Park’s gardens.
Volunteer ambassadors greet visitors, answer questions at information booths and assist with special events. The 1,800-acre Safari Park is located in San Pasqual Valley near Escondido.
Applicants must be age 18 or older and agree to volunteer 60 hours per year and follow the San Diego Zoo Global Volunteer policies. Volunteers fill out an online application, including references and have an interview with the volunteer interview panel. Successful applicants then complete orientation training along with three scavenger hunts and two mentor sessions.
Ambassadors can eventually train to become interpretive volunteers to teach visitors about animals and conservation. Volunteer jobs do not involve working directly with animals.
