Event Volunteer

Event volunteers are essential to the Buttonwood Park Zoological Society.

We host many different events throughout the year to raise funds to support our shared mission with the Buttonwood Park Zoo of creating experiences for exploring and enjoying the natural world.

The Society supports the zoo by managing family events and coordinating fundraising activities. The success of our events is made possible by the many volunteers who offer their time and talents to our events and society. There are various opportunities for volunteering throughout the year and a range of different volunteers needed. Education, conservation, sustainability, protection, inspiration – all things that can be achieved with YOUR help!
