LCF Animal Husbandry Volunteer
Email address *
Position Purpose & Scope
Thank you for your interest in volunteering at the Lemur Conservation Foundation. Animal Husbandry Volunteers have the unique opportunity to work alongside keepers, interns, and other staff to complete necessary projects for the well-being of the animals housed at LCF. Volunteer positions exist to SUPPORT not supplant the work of paid staff positions.

If accepted as an Animal Husbandry Volunteer, an initial orientation is required prior to beginning volunteer service. In order to work around the animals, LCF policy requires that you have proof of a negative TB test due at the time of your orientation. If you have not had a TB test within the past year, plan to give yourself enough time to complete the test prior to your orientation since it requires a reading 48 hours following administration of the test. We do not require any other testing or vaccinations, although a current tetanus vaccination is strongly recommended.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Volunteers are not guaranteed to work directly with animals on the reserve.

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 akoproject@lemurreserve.org.
