MetaZoo Volunteers, Docents & Job Shadowing

Volunteers & Docents

The Louisville zoo’s docent program is suspended due to COVID-19. Check back periodically for details.  Docents (volunteer teachers) assist the Louisville Zoo Education Department in teaching classes to school groups, sharing information with Zoo visitors, reaching out to our community through outreach programs and helping “to better the bond between people and our planet.”

Job Shadowing

At this time, we are not scheduling individual job shadowing opportunities. We will introduce a new program for high school students interested in learning more about careers in zoological, veterinary,  environmental sciences, and other related fields.  Come back to this page later for more information about this program.

Our behind-the-scenes tours and experiences are currently suspended due to COVID-19. Click for more info on future behind-the-scenes experiences.
