Volunteer opportunities available at Desert Tortoise Conservation Center

The San Diego Zoo recently partnered with the US Fish and Wildlife Service to operate the Desert Tortoise Conservation Center right here in Las Vegas. Anyone interested in volunteering your time and making a big difference in the lives of a threatened species, then we have the position for you!
Come out to the Desert Tortoise Conservation Center to help us feed tortoises, wash totes, clean up the desert, care for sick and injured tortoises, and assist staff with data collection and data entry. Whatever your skills are, the staff can greatly use your help. If you have a few hours every week or only one day a month, the staff is willing to work around student schedules.
For additional information please contact Dr. Paula Kahn at pkahn@sandiegozoo.org.
