Due to the large volume of requests, the Minnesota Zoo is currently unable to offer job shadowing opportunities. If the zookeepers accommodated all inquiries the animals would be very hungry! You can learn more about the different jobs at the zoo in our job profiles section. The Zoo also offers several Career Days for more in-depth exploration of careers in the field you are interested in. These Days give you a rare opportunity to speak with a zookeeper in person.
Thank you for your interest. Good luck in your job exploration and finding the job that’s right for you! We hope to see you on Career Day!
