Volunteer with us!

Do you have a wild side?

We have many opportunities for you to share your time and talents with the Wildlife Center and our community!

Get Involved!

From working on-site with animal care and facility upkeep to helping at community events and education programs, there are lots of fulfilling ways to make a difference.  We are open 7 days a week and have flexible shifts available to work within your schedule.

Because we rely so heavily on support from our volunteer team, we ask you make a 6-month commitment to volunteering with us, as well as coming on a regular, weekly basis for all on-site assignments (denoted with *).  All other assignments are considered on-call, as events and other activities arise.

Due to the nature of our permits volunteers must be 16 or older to volunteer with the WCNC.  Volunteers 16-18 must be accompanied by a chaperone.

"Releasing animals back into the wild is a magical experience.

I am endlessly grateful for this opportunity to learn and experience these epic animals. I guess you can say I've been bit by the wildlife bug, and I have every intention of continuing this fulfilling and eventful work."
