Zoo Corps is for teens ages 13 through 17 who have an interest in wildlife conservation, education, or public speaking. Members set up discovery stations in the Zoo and use artifacts, biofacts, literature, props, and interactive games to teach Zoo guests about topics like animal care, local San Diego habitats, wildlife conservation, and saving species. Zoo Corps members participate at least once a month.
Upcoming information meetings:
Saturday, May 5, 2018, at 9 a.m.
Information meetings are located at the Dickinson Family Center for Lifelong Learning, which is to the left of the Zoo's entrance. Head down Centennial Walkway, and you will reach the Dickinson Family Center just before Spanish Village.
“Zoo Corps has really changed my life. Before I was really shy and I absolutely feared and hated public speaking and talking in front of an audience. But now that I did Zoo Corps, I love talking in front of people. Educating people is something I love to do now. Thank you Zoo Corps for the amazing opportunity you gave me.”– Mari P.
