Starting out, I did it for my graduation project. After my hours were finished I decided to continue because I loved the environment! I loved the people and the animals. All I simply did was watch videos of previous graduation project ideas, and became fascinated with the zoo idea, so I decided to tweak it a bit and volunteer the the Children's Zoo area. Just apply on the site, send them everything required, like letter of recommendations, report card, things like that. They eventually get back to you. The place is great!
