Volunteering at the New York State Zoo

We need your help! As a volunteer, you will contribute to the success of the New York State Zoo and its mission to promote conservation and education.

Volunteer training is ongoing. Submit a volunteer application to find out more. 

There are currently volunteer opportunities within the following departments:

Animal Management: If you would like to help the Keepers with the care of the animals in the Zoo's collection, this is the department for you. Be prepared to work in any weather. To ensure your safety, you will always work with a Keeper and have minimal contact with the animals.

Maintenance: If you like horticulture, construction, or just helping keep the Zoo a well-oiled machine, then this is the department for you. Whether it's raking leaves, building enclosures, or fixing a problem, you will be a part of the backbone of the Zoo that makes it all happen.

Education: If you love talking to people about the zoo, its animals, or conservation, then you should help out in the education department! Dedicated education volunteers can work their way to docent status.

Guest Services: Guest services volunteers may be asked to act as greeters, gift shop attendants, or to do some light cleaning of the gift shop or café area.

Special Events: If you would like to volunteer at special Zoo events, then being an "on-call" volunteer may be for you. This is a good choice for people with busy schedules who can't make a regular commitment.

Do you want more responsibility?
Docents are individuals committed to the educational goals of our facility. Their dedication enables the Education Department to fulfill its mission. Docents must be at least 18 years of age, complete 16 hours of training and serve 60 hours annually (at least 3 hrs. per month). Training includes animal natural history, guided tours, interpretation, animal handling, facility history, public speaking, and more. To learn more about the Docent Program, please contact the Education Department at (315) 755-0896.

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer at the New York State Zoo, please complete the volunteer application. Please note that very few volunteers are permitted contact with the animals and all volunteers must undergo training.

For more information, please call Cassie Vinette at (315) 755-0896.

Animals http://nyszoo.org/animals.html http://nyszoo.org/animals.html

Animals of the New York State Zoo

 Adopt an Animal

 

American Elk (Cervus canadensis)Elk1

On exhibit: The photo to the right is male elk Aspen. He was born at the zoo 8 years ago. His mother Rosie lives with him currently. She is 21 years old. 

Diet: Herbivore; grass, shrubs, bark

Average wild life span: 8-12 years

Shoulder height: 4-5 feet (1.2-1.5 meters)

Average weight: 500-730 lbs (225-331 kg)

New York State status: Extirpated. There currently are no wild elk in New York. The eastern elk subspecies, now extinct, was once common in Pennsylvania and southern New York State.

  

Bobcat (Lynx rufus)100 1331 vE

On exhibit: Shadow is our resident bobcat. She is 20 years old.

Diet: Carnivore; small mammals and birds

Average wild life span: 6-12 years

Shoulder height: 1-2 feet (0.3-0.6 meters)

Average weight: 14-21 lbs (6.4-9.5 kg)

New York State status: Common. Although rarely seen, bobcats live throughout New York State. They are nocturnal and tend to avoid populated areas. One way to determine if there are bobcats on your property is by using a motion-activated camera.

 

Mountain lion (Puma concolor)009 3

On exhibit: Ninja is a 2 year old male mountain lion. 

Diet: Carnivore: eats mostly large mammals like deer and elk

Average wild life span: 8-13 years

Shoulder height: 2-3 feet (0.6-0.9 meters)

Average weight: 100-180 lbs (45-81 kg)

New York State status: Extirpated. Cougars are considered extirpated in New York State. This means they once lived here but there are no populations remaining in the state. Despite this official status, sightings of cougars are often reported within New York, particularly in the Adirondacks and North Country.

  

besteagle

Bald eagle (Haliaeetus leucocephalus) 

On exhibit: We have two male bald eagles on exhibit. Duncan is about 27 years old and Dante is 6. They were both wild born and brought to the zoo because injuries have made them unreleasable.

Diet: Carnivore; fish and other small animals

Average wild life span: 30 years

Wingspan: 7 feet (2.1 meters)

Average weight: 8-13 lbs (3.6-5.9 kg)

New York State status: Threatened. The 20th century saw a huge decline and recovery of bald eagles in New York and nationwide. Pesticides were the main cause of the decline. By banning DDT and using captive breeding, conservationists were able to restore the bald eagle population to its current size. They are doing better, but bald eagles are still listed as a threatened species in New York.

 

Canada lynx (Lynx canadensis)lynxface

On exhibit: Chayne, a 5 year old female, and her mate Abraham, a 2 year old male. In 2013 they had their first litter with 3 boys and 1 girl. 

Diet: Carnivore; snowshoe hares and other small mammals and birds

Average wild life span: 14 years

Shoulder height: 19-22 inches (48-56 cm)

Average weight: 18-22 lbs (8-10 kg)

New York State status: Threatened. Extirpated is the word conservationists use to describe the status of a species that no longer lives in a certain area. Reported sightings of lynx in New York often turn our to be bobcats, although lynx do pass through from time to time.

  

snowy

Snowy owl (Bubo scandiaca) 

On exhibit: The snowy owl you see on exhibit at the zoo is Doc, a 14 year old male. Doc was born in captivity in St Louis.

Diet: Carnivore; small mammals

Average wild life span: 10 years

Wingspan: 4-5 feet (1.2-1.5 meters)

Average weight: 2-4 lbs (0.9-1.8 kg)

New York State status: Transient. Although snowy owls breed in the far northern reaches of Canada, they move south in the winter into the United States, including New York. You might see them hunting for small mammals in the snow throughout the North Country in winter.

  

American black bear (Ursus americanus)tessbear

On exhibit: Tess is 2 years old. She was placed at the zoo by the DEC in July 2013. 

Diet: Omnivore, opportunistic

Average wild life span: 18 years

Height: up to 7 feet (2.1 m) when standing on hind feet

Average weight: 160-300 lbs (73-136 kg)

New York State status: Common. Most black bears in New York State live in the Adirondacks or Catskills. If you want to avoid bears in the wild, you should make lots of noise and use bear-proof containers for storing food while hiking or camping.

 

WOLVERINE HEAD ONWolverine (Gulo gulo)

On exhibit: Stinky is a 15 year old male, and Valentine is his 8 year old female companion. Despite our best efforts, Stinky and Valentine have never had any kits. 

Diet: Carnivore; predator/scavenger

Average wild life span: 7-12 years

Shoulder height: 14-18 inches (36-45 cm)

Average weight: 18-31 lbs (8-14 kg)

New York State status: Extirpated. Wolverines are not currently found in New York State, but they may have once lived here. Wolverines' solitary, secretive behavior makes them difficult to study.

 

Grey Wolf (Canis lupis)wolf pack

On exhibit: Kaja and Kenai are our mating pair. Kaja is 9 years old and Kenai 7. They have had several litters of pups in their years here at the New York State Zoo.

Diet: Carnivore

Average wild life span: 8-12 years

Height: 2-3 feet at shoulder

Average weight: males 120 lbs (54 kg), females 100 lbs (45 kg)

New York State status: Extirpated. Wolves were once common in New York State. Human population growth and persecution of predator species harmed wolf populations, and now there are none in the Eastern US. 

Grey Wolf Sponsored By 85677513

  

FisherFisher (Martes pennanti)

On exhibit: Wilma is our female fisher. She is 8 years old.

Diet: Carnivore; predator/scavenger

Average wild life span: up to 10 years

Body length: 31-40 inches (78-101 cm)

Average weight: 4-16 lbs (1.8-7.2 kg)

New York State status: Common. Fisher populations declined in the early 1900s due to habitat loss and over-harvesting. They have since recovered and fishers can be found in much of rural New York state in densely forested areas. You might find one waiting in a tree for a suitable meal to come along.

 

North American River Otter (Lontra canadensis)swimming

On exhibit: Otis is the largest of the three otters, he is 8 years old. Annie and Sunny, the girls, are both 4 years old.

Diet: Carnivore: fish, amphibians, invertebrates

Average wild life span: 7-13 years

Body length: 3-4 feet (0.9-1.2 m)

Average weight: 15-25 lbs (6.8-11.3 kg)

New York State status: Not listed. River otters are not listed as an endangered or threatened species. They are vulnerable to decline from habitat loss and degradation. At the top of their food chain, they are vulnerable to pollutants that may be picked up by their food from rivers and streams.

  

2goldensGolden Eagle (Aquila chrysaetos)

On exhibit: The larger of our two golden eagles (top) is Snoopy, a female. She is 22 years old. Billy, the male (bottom left), is 19. Both were born wild in Wyoming and brought into captivity after injuries made them unreleasable.

Diet: Carnivore; rodents and other small animals

Average wild life span: 32 years

Wingspan: 7 feet (2.1 meters)

Average weight: 6-13 lbs (2.7-5.9 kg)

New York State status: Endangered. Golden eagles do not commonly breed in New York and are therefore considered endangered in the state. If you see a golden eagle, it has probably migrated south from Canada for the winter.

  

Raven (Corvus corax)ravens

On exhibit: The two ravens, ages 6 and 7, share an exhibit with the bald eagles. 

Diet: Carnivore: scavenger

Average wild life span: 9 years

Wingspan: 3.7 feet (1.1 m)

Average weight: 1.5-3.5 lbs (0.7-1.6 kg)

New York State status: Common. Ravens are one of the most widespread birds in the world. They are found across the northern hemisphere, surviving in a wide range of habitats. You might find one stealing a meal from another animal or scavenging some road kill.

 

 

 

Farm Exhibit

 

alpacaAlpaca (Lama pacos)

On exhibit: The zoo has three male alpacas: RPR, Valiant, and Warrior. They're all around 7 years old. 

Diet: Herbivore: browser

Average life span: up to 20 years

Average height (shoulder): 3-4 feet (2.7-3.6 m)

Average weight: 106-185 lbs (48-84 kg)

Origin: Alpacas are a South American species related to llamas and camels. They have been domesticated for thousands of years. Natives of the high Andes mountains breed them for their wool and for meat. 

  

Miniature donkey (Equus asinus)hankandalex

On exhibit: There are two donkeys in the farm exhibit. Hank, a male, is 21 years old and Alex, a female, is 25. They have both lived at the zoo for nine years.

Diet: Herbivore; grazer

Average life span: 25-30 years

Height at shoulder: 3 feet (91 cm)

Average weight: 200-350 lbs (91-159 kg)

hog1Guinea hog (Sus scrofa)

On exhibit: Our two guinea hogs, Jack and Jill, are actually brother and sister! They are 4 years old and have lived at the zoo since they were just a few months old.

Diet: Herbivore: fruits, nuts, vegetables, hay, roots

Average life span: 13-16 years

Average height (shoulder): 21-24 inches (53-61 cm)

Average weight: 150-300 lbs (68-136 kg)

Nigerian dwarf goat (Capra hircus)goats

On exhibit: The two male goats who currently live in the zoo's farm exhibit are Oreo and Tommy. I bet you can guess by his color which is oreo! They are both 10 years old.

Diet: Herbivore; grazer

Average life span: 15-20 years

Height at shoulder: 17-23 inches (43-58 cm)

Average weight: 75 lbs (34 kg)

Zoo History http://nyszoo.org/2013-11-02-20-39-56/zoo-history.html http://nyszoo.org/2013-11-02-20-39-56/zoo-history.html

History of the New York State Zoo

The Thompson Park Zoo was established in 1920 when the Northern New York Trust Company donated two whitetail deer to Thompson Park and the City of Watertown to create a naturalistic exhibit that would offer all visitors an opportunity to enjoy the grace and beauty of these indigenous animals.

Since 1920, Watertown’s Zoo has been home to a diverse collection of wildlife from the exotic to the indigenous. The first animals were purchased with funds raised by the children’s Park Zoo Club. The club, under the leadership of a twelve-year old boy, was formed as a support organization to provide a source of funding to feed the animals and construct small habitats for animals like porcupines, raccoons and other small carnivores.

Over the next few decades, Zoos across America began to shift towards a more naturalistic method of exhibiting animals. Seeking to incorporate these changes into the Watertown Zoo, a new generation of leadership established the Thompson Park Conservancy and Zoo. In 1992 the Zoo was turned over to the Conservancy, a federal not-for-profit 501(c)(3) entity. The Zoo began a period of rapid growth and expansion developing a “new Zoo” for the citizens of the North Country, an endeavor which continues to this day.

The New York State Zoo at Thompson Park prides itself as being the only zoo in the world to exhibit species native to New York State. Abundant, threatened or endangered animals, including wolverines, bears, eagles, mountain lions and more make their home at our 32-acre Zoo.

Our Zoo is now the second most visited attraction in the Thousand Islands Region. It attracts nearly 50,000 visitors per year and is supported by over 800 member households and reaches nearly 35,000 people through education programs.

The New York State Zoo continues to move forward inspiring conservation, education and family oriented programs.
