Group Volunteer Opportunities

There are loads of fun and rewarding opportunities to support your zoo! The Calgary Zoo welcomes corporate, school, and other volunteer groups to get involved in our project and events. Large-scale volunteering is subject to pre-planning with our Volunteer Resources team and we ask that requests be received at least 30 days in advance to organize.

Please complete our Contact Form to inquire about corporate and group volunteer opportunities and a member of our team will respond you within 2 – 3 business days.


Can’t offer up your time? As a registered non-profit, the zoo depends on your support. Together, we can protect wildlife in our own backyards and across the globe.

The Calgary Zoo has North America’s largest indoor hippo tank. In the wild, tilapia fish swim alongside wild hippos in the Nile River. At the zoo, tilapia help us keep the tank clean by feeding on hippo waste.
