The Tulsa Zoo is looking for a few good volunteers. The city has pulled $25,000 a year in funding for the Rainforest exhibit.
That money paid for staff to greet guests and answer questions about the exotic birds, fish and animals. So the zoo is looking for volunteers to fill these spots. Zoo director, Larry Nunley, "It's a year-round temperature control. You're immersed in wildlife all around you."
6 year volunteer, Janice Bowman, "If you enjoy people and you enjoy animals and you love new things and learning constantly, this is the place for you."
Volunteers should have good people skills. If you're lacking in rain forest facts, don't worry, the zoo will train you. If you'd like to volunteer, call the zoo at 669-6271.
