Volunteer alongside some amazing animals

Unique opportunities are up for grabs at Wild Place Project this year, offering the chance to volunteer with lemurs, giraffe, cheetah and wolves. 
 
Around 65 learning ranger volunteer positions are available at the three-year-old attraction, which involve spending at least half a day a week in a variety of different areas and walk-throughs.
 
Learning ranger volunteers will also have the chance to volunteer alongside the attraction’s forthcoming residents – three reticulated giraffe - and engage guests around the new Giraffe House exhibit, due to open later this spring.
 
Volunteers will also be expected to support with guest enquiries and inspire them about the attraction’s animals.
 
Jade Stott, volunteer coordinator at Wild Place Project, said: “We are looking for enthusiastic and confident people who enjoy talking to guests and are interested in wildlife conservation.
 
“Volunteers play such an important role and are an integral part of the day-to-day running of Wild Place Project. We currently have around 90 volunteers with us.”
 
Fay is a volunteer learning ranger at Wild Place Project. She said: “I have two young children and have had membership to Wild Place Project with them for a few years.
 
“I gave up my job last year to spend more time with the children but wanted to do something else as well. I love coming to Wild Place Project to volunteer every week, meeting guests of all ages and learning about the characteristics of all the animals - especially the lemurs.”
 
Volunteers are needed to help at Wild Place Project for at least half a day per week. No experience is necessary as full training will be given. Volunteers must be 18+ years of age.
