Join us as a Junior Keeper!

The Junior Keeper Program is open to qualified young people between the ages of 12 and 16 years old. It’s a chance for young people to Volunteer here and learn about the opportunities available in other animal/conservation/science fields.

In addition to working directly with the animals, Junior Keepers are involved with keeper duties, helping to present information to the public. In addition to gaining information about the exotic animals in our collection, Junior Keepers learn about the importance of caring for our native species. They develop public speaking, organizational and team building skills, just to name a few.

The Junior Keeper Program is open to a select, dedicated few who are able to make a long-term commitment. We also offer community service opportunities.

Please see our Facebook page to see Junior Keepers in action. For more information, please contact Kimberly Robertson at (707) 541-7340, or Corrine Bishop at (707)566-3613, email jrkeepers@safariwestwildlifefoundation.org.
