Volunteer at Oatland

Oatland Island Wildlife Center has a variety of opportunities for adults over the age of 18. A few of the volunteer opportunities require a weekly/bi-weekly time commitment; whereas other opportunities can be done in a day! 


All adult volunteers may be subject to a background check depending on the position. Please understand that due to the nature of our facility, there is very limited opportunity to handle and work directly with the animals in our collection. However, we do offer internship opportunities in our animal care department.
