LCF Animal Husbandry Volunteer
Thank you for your interest in volunteering! The Lemur Conservation Foundation is currently working on updating and reorganizing our volunteer program. All new volunteers will be on hold until the new program is in place. You are welcome to submit an application, however, we appreciate your patience during this transition period.
Respect for Wildlife
Lemurs are wild animals. For the health, safety, and welfare of all lemurs and guests, the Lemur Conservation Foundation does NOT allow volunteers to approach, touch, pet, hold, or play with any lemur under any circumstance. Failure to comply with LCF policy will result in immediate dismissal from all volunteer duties.
Position Purpose & Scope
Thank you for your interest in volunteering at the Lemur Conservation Foundation. LCF Reserve Volunteers have the unique opportunity to support staff and interns at our 130 acre reserve in Florida by helping to complete assigned tasks and special projects.
An online Volunteer Orientation is required prior to scheduling your first volunteer shift. To ensure the safety and well-being of the animal residents at LCF, we require proof of a negative TB test before beginning your first volunteer shift. Please note that a TB test is typically assessed by a healthcare professional 48 hours after administration. If you have not had a TB test within the past year, plan to give yourself enough time to get the test administered and assessed before requesting to schedule your first volunteer shift. We do not require any other testing or vaccinations, although a tetanus booster is strongly recommended.
Please complete the questions on the following application, and we will respond to you as volunteer opportunities become available. If you have any questions, please contact
Education Manager and/or Zoological Manager as appropriate
• Must be 18+ years old (or 14-17 years old with parent permission)
• Must have proof of a current negative TB test
• Must be dependable and punctual
• Must be courteous when dealing with staff, interns, and other volunteers
• Must be self-driven and detail-oriented
• Must be able to work outdoors for extended periods of time in hot, humid conditions
Scheduling is flexible to fit your time and availability. Volunteer assignments will depend on the individual’s experience, training, and consistency.
Recommended: two 3-hour shifts per month (minimum 4 months)
