The Santa Ana Zoo has paid part time and full time zoo keeper position openings on a very limited basis.
Zookeeper jobs are difficult to obtain and therefore not frequently vacated, although some jobs have recently been available through the City of Santa Ana.
The best thing to do is monitor the following for openings:
- City of Santa Ana Job Line: (714) 647-6500
- City of Santa Ana TDD User Relay Line 1: (800) 735-2929
- www.santa-ana.org/jobs: This is the City of Santa Ana site and will provide listings of positions open at the Santa Ana Zoo.
- www.aza.org: This is the site for the American Association of Zoos and Aquariums and will list openings in zoos and aquariums across the country. This is also a good resource for learning job requirements and pay rates.
- www.aazk.org: This is the site for the American Association of Zoo Keepers and also lists openings, job requirements and salaries in zoos and aquariums across the country.
