We have opportunities to volunteer in several areas, depending upon your interest, and you can volunteer with us from the age of 16 – and there’s no upper age limit! You can volunteer with any one of the following teams: Aviculture, Farm, Aquarium, Gardens and Education. We ask for a commitment of time on a regular basis over an agreed period to ensure that any training we give is reciprocated fairly and in return we offer experience in a friendly zoo environment and fun, challenging work.
Our staff work from 8am each day, and have an average 8 hour working day. Volunteers can of course work different hours but again we ask that these be agreed in advance. We will provide a volunteer polo shirt for identification purposes, other than this you will be able to wear your own clothes (unless specific protective clothing is needed for individual tasks undertaken). If you are keen to pursue this further, then please consider your situation and the commitment you are willing to make, as well as which area you would like to be considered for.
