Volunteer

Do you want to volunteer in one of the greatest parks in the world and learn about amazing ecosystems that thrive so close to Vancouver’s busy downtown core? The Stanley Park Ecology Society offers unique internship and volunteer opportunities that will connect you and others with nature.

Engage with wildlife, nature and like-minded people

Volunteers are engaged in all aspects of SPES’s work from education, conservation, wildlife monitoring, and office tasks. You might find yourself monitoring water quality, trapping fish or talking with park visitors, helping a child with a pond dip or working on a database. With a wide variety of exciting and fulfilling opportunities to choose from, volunteers enjoy a multitude of challenging and fun learning experiences.
