The Greensboro Science Center is not licensed to rehabilitate injured wildlife. We recommend visiting Piedmont Wildlife Rehab’s website to find a rehabber in your area.

As an accredited AZA facility, we generally do not accept animals from the public. We recommend calling your local shelter or rescue organization for assistance.

Unfortunately, job openings with our zoo are very limited. When available, we look for previous animal care experience as well as college schooling related to biology, ecology or other life sciences. These and other positions in the zoological field can be found at www.aza.org/joblistings.

We also work extensively with Davidson County Community College's Zoo and Aquarium Science Program to provide training to their students through internships and job shadowing.

We love when students have a chance to complete job shadows and senior projects at our facility. Due to the high volume of requests we receive for these opportunities, we have had to limit them to current high school juniors or seniors who have successfully volunteered with us for at least 4 months. By volunteering with us already, they've demonstrated their desire to learn more about this field and have built a strong understanding of our facility before moving behind the scenes with staff. We cannot guarantee the availability of a senior project as those are determined by student performance once they are accepted into the volunteer program.

We frequently receive requests from individuals who hope to complete community service hours at our organization. Unfortunately we are unable to provide those opportunities. For a list of organizations in our area who do offer them, please visit the website for the Volunteer Center of Greensboro: www.volunteergso.org/court-related.

The Greensboro Science Center is proud to support other events in our community and we are grateful to receive many requests for donations each year. Our Board of Directors requires all distributions to community organizations are exclusively for non-profit organizations whose mission is to support underprivileged children or children with learning or physical disabilities.

As a non-profit organization, the Greensboro Science Center does not offer refunds on admission, camps, classes, memberships, or ticket purchases of any kind.
