I think Amarillo is a very lucky city to have its own zoo.  We have a great zoo with a lot of great animals.  This zoo is awesome because they not only have the wonderful animals,  they are always hosting fun activities for the entire family.  However it takes a lot of up keep to keep our zoo open and that is where the volunteers come into play.  The Amarillo Zoo is looking for volunteers and has an upcoming training.
