The Brevard Zoo offers many programs where teens can learn about animals, become citizen scientists, explore zoo careers and volunteer. See you at the Zoo!
Teen citizen scientists wanted! Is your family interested in helping our amphibian population in Brevard County? Amphibians are an important indicator species; their populations are the first to decline when something in the environment changes. Brevard Zoo has joined the FrogWatch USA community and helps track and record the variety of species in our area through a network of trained volunteers. This database collects from across the country to help determine for scientist and researchers what species are where and help develop strategies for conservation of these important animals.

Our Zoo Teens are extremely excited and passionate about conservation! Each year they organize a Youth Environmental Summit. Their goal is to empower youth from across Florida, ages 12-18, to play an active role in conservation by providing them with information and tools. Attendees discuss environmental concerns, attend workshops and participate in hands-on projects.
The Zoo’s Teen Program provides a way for youth to serve their community in pursuit of environmental awareness and career exploration. Teens are offered a variety of opportunities throughout the year with our year-long Zoo Teen Program and the Summer VolunTeen Program.
Each year, Zoo Teens work alongside staff to create a positive and memorable experience for Zoo visitors. Teens perform a variety of tasks at the Zoo that include Animal Handling, Kayaking and Public Education. Zoo Teens also volunteer their time for Zoo Camp, fundraisers and special events.
There are numerous benefits to joining the Zoo Teen Program. Students can use their volunteer experience to meet community service requirements for Florida Bright Futures Scholarships. Teens also have the opportunity to work directly with animals and the public, gaining valuable skills for a variety of careers. Most importantly, Zoo Teens gain an appreciation for the value of volunteer work and community involvement. Click here to learn more…
