Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteers are a big asset to the Center for Wildlife Education. However, the volunteer policy recently changed at Georgia Southern University, which has impacted volunteer opportunities at the Wildlife Center.

  • The Wildlife Center will no longer be accepting short-term volunteers or students volunteering only for class credit or projects.
  • Volunteers MUST be 18 years of age or older.
  • The Wildlife Center no longer accepts community service or court mandated workers.
  • Background investigations are required on all Wildlife Center volunteers.

Despite the current university policy changes there are still rewarding and fun volunteer opportunities at the Wildlife Center.

If you are interested in volunteering at the Wildlife Center, please stop by and pick up a volunteer packet of information, volunteer application and background investigation form.

If you are a student at Georgia Southern University, we strongly encourage you to register with Volunteer Services on campus. They offer a Volunteer Transcript to all registered students with a minimum of 200 service hours. For more information, contact Volunteer Services at 912-478-7270 or visit their office.
