Ready to Join?

Dear KL Changemakers,

Fancy a trip to the zoo? Or play zookeeper for a day?
Here's your chance to do something equally fun!

On 1st September, we will be going to the Zoo Negara in Hulu Kelang, Ampang and participating in their volunteer programme. Come befriend the animals, feed them and help keep the zoo environment clean!

The Zoo Negara Volunteer Programme is about providing a close relation between human and wildlife by learning to understand their needs and social behaviour. By working hand in hand with the zoo personnel, this programme also helps to build up your self-confidence and spirit through the community service and raise awareness on wildlife conservation. Apart from this, you will also learn to get a chance to explore behind the scene as a zookeeper by assisting them on daily routine.

This programme is open to everyone aged 16 years and above. As a volunteer, you must be willing to help the zoo in any appropriate tasks assigned to you throughout the duration of your session.
