At the Calgary Zoo, we’re always looking for employees who care about animals, conservation and visitor experiences. Some employees work with us for a season or two, while others have been part of the zoo crew for decades. The Calgary Zoo is one wild and beautiful place to work, and it’s the only workplace in Calgary where you can spend your break roaming beautiful gardens and hanging around with exotic animals from around the world.
