“Volunteers do not necessarily have the time; they just have the heart.” – Elizabeth Andrew

If you feel a desire to become part of something awe-inspiring and bigger than yourself, think about joining our team of talented and dedicated volunteers. Their desire to preserve and protect animals in peril is expressed through their gifts of time and energy. They give back to the community and offer future

generations a chance to be inspired by these rare and magnificent animals.
Without the volunteers at Fossil Rim, we could not accomplish the tasks set before us. With a large expanded territory, our facility attracts people from all over the world.



At Fossil Rim, volunteers are not locked into one job. They can volunteer in multiple areas and receive all necessary training. Volunteers act as ambassadors for our organization. They are knowledgeable of Fossil Rim’s history and its animal inhabitants.


Fossil Rim is in the process of revamping our volunteer training process. We will be accepting new volunteers starting in July of 2020. Volunteers must be at least 18 years of age, attend on-board training in August, and be willing to commit a minimum of 50 hours of on-site service each year. If you are interested in receiving more information as it becomes available, please send your name, phone number, and email address to volunteercoordinator@fossilrim.org.
