Conservation Discovery Corps
What is it? CDC is a summer volunteer program that will allow teens to explore zoological and environmental careers while presenting to and interacting with small groups of visitors at the Zoo. Teens will also have the opportunity to participate in exciting field conservation research studies in the field.
Where does it take place? Your training and main volunteering will take place at the Zoo, 1875 Noble Ave. in Bridgeport, but field research will take place throughout New York and New England.
Who can participate? Students ages 14-18 who are currently enrolled in high school.
Why should I volunteer? You will gain insight into a potential career, you will build your resume and impress college recruiters, you will learn lifelong skills such as public speaking and teamwork, you will help save local species and habitats and – most importantly – you will have FUN!
How much does it cost? Just $75 pays for your training program, work uniforms, and travel expenses for the field research trips. In return, you receive a free family pass to the Zoo for one year.
