Volunteering at the Refuge

Cape May National Wildlife Refuge welcomes volunteers. Loss of habitat to human uses is the world's biggest cause of species endangerment and extinction. Because we continue to establish towns, cities and recreation sites in areas that were once natural habitats, wildlife needs our help more than ever to survive. Individuals interested in volunteering are welcome to contact Refuge headquarters at (609) 463-0994 any weekday from 8:00 am – 4:30 pm.

We need volunteer greeters for our visitor contact station at the Two Mile Beach Unit. Position Description (pdf - 47KB)

Summer Employment Opportunities

Cape May National Wildlife Refuge has valuable and stimulating internship opportunities for the upcoming summer season. Interns will work side by side with educated professions as they learn the ins and outs of the wildlife management field. Many opportunities exist for you to join other interns and observe what they are doing as well. Something new is happening at the refuge just about every day, so why not take advantage of this great learning experience? We need Environmental Beach Stewards to work at the Two Mile Beach Unit during the summer.
