The Zoo Patrol provides animal and nature-loving teens from the age of 14 through 18 with an organized framework to volunteer and learn about zoology, environmental awareness and wildlife conservation. The program, which functions essentially as a youth movement, similar to the Scouts, attracts dozens of teens each year from all of the diverse communities that make up the social fiber of Jerusalem.  Many of the Biblical Zoo’s current staff members started out as members of the Zoo Patrol, proving that this program develops the future leadership of wildlife conservation in Israel.

The program combines informal learning in a fun and engaging atmosphere with hands-on work by assisting the Zoo staff with their daily tasks. Activities include:

  • staffing information booths
  • explaining correct Zoo visitor etiquette
  • publishing materials for distribution
  • volunteer work at the Zoo on a weekly basis
  • active conservation work such as observation studies of endangered species in the Jerusalem area

The Zoo Patrol is supervised by a program coordinator who develops educational activities throughout the year. Participants are assigned to a counselor who places them in appropriate volunteering positions within the Zoo and who monitors their progress and provides them with technical and emotional support.
