This is a great opportunity to learn, gain experience, and be a part of our amazing education team.
This educator position is seasonal full time from May to August. We are looking for someone with open availability who is interested in learning and engaging with guests to further our mission. There are so many great opportunities at Wonders of Wildlife!
About Wonders of Wildlife
Johnny Morris' Wonders of Wildlife National Museum and Aquarium is the largest, most-immersive fish and wildlife attraction in the world. The facility consists of a 1.5-million-gallon Aquarium Adventure showcasing 35,000 live fish, mammals, reptiles, amphibians and birds, and immersive Wildlife Galleries sharing the story of America's most significant conservationists throughout history and today. Created by noted conservationist and Bass Pro Shops founder Johnny Morris, the 350,000-square-foot experience celebrates people who hunt, fish, and act as stewards of the land and water. Located next to Bass Pro Shops National Headquarters in Springfield, Missouri, the campus is a centerpiece of America's Conservation Capital in Missouri's Ozark Mountains. WOW has been voted "Best New Attraction" in 2017 and "America's Best Aquarium" for a record-breaking four times by the readers of USA TODAY and received its AZA accreditation in 2022.

A Day in the Life as a Camp Educator
Camp Educators coordinate, implement, and present a variety of programs. The aquarium hosts summer camps, workshops for school groups, and more throughout the aquarium. Educators get the best of both worlds: learning and time in the classroom. Educators learn about the properties, how to handle animals, and program development. They then get to take their knowledge and teach to guests to help them find their connection to the great outdoors. If you enjoy animals and developing programs we encourage you to apply!
