Review for Naples Zoo at Caribbean Gardens, Naples, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I was already a member of Naples Zoo when I received a 10-hour volunteer requirement from school, so naturally I wanted to complete the requirement at the zoo. Over 100 volunteer hours later I'm still at it.

First off, the volunteer organization at Naples Zoo is very professionally managed. Second, they give you lots of training before you head out to work, so you aren't blindsided by anything. Third, there's always lots of support from the employees while you are working. Fourth, the Zoo is very generous with benefits (such as free membership for 3 family members or friends, Zoo tickets used as awards, etc.) Fifth, whether you work one morning a week (like I do) or much more, you're still treated as a valuable member of the team. And sixth and most importantly, it's fun! You make a big difference to the enjoyment guests have, and they appreciate your efforts.
