The Potawatomi Zoo is a 23-acre zoo located in South Bend, Indiana, United States. The zoo is run and maintained by the Potawatomi Zoological Society, but is also still remains city owned. Founded in 1902, it is the oldest zoo in Indiana. It features over 500 animals and is accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums. The zoo has over 200,000 visitors each year.
Potawatomi Zoo has multiple seasonal animal care positions open for the 2021 season (April-November). This is a part-time, non-benefitted position, with hours ranging throughout the season, but up to 40 hours/week in peak season (June-August). Applicants must be highly motivated and be willing to work flexible hours, which will include weekends, evenings and holidays. Candidates will be trained and expected to work independently in our Children’s zoo (farm) area, with the possibility of cross-training in other areas of the zoo if motivated and exhibit superb animal care and responsibility. While this is a husbandry position, a main component of the job will be interacting with the public and acting as an attendant in our farm area.
