Chimpanzee Discovery Days

Twice each year, Chimp Haven opens its doors to the public for a morning of chimpanzee discovery and fun, and relies on volunteers to make these events special. Volunteers may lead educational activities and booths, greet visitors, and assist Chimp Haven staff.

Other Things to Know

Due to the specialized training required to work with our chimpanzees, volunteers will not work directly with chimpanzees or in indoor areas where chimpanzees are housed.

At this time Chimp Haven offers local volunteer opportunities. We are not currently able to offer resident or remote opportunities.
