Volunteering at Wild Place Project is a fantastic way to learn new skills and meet new people whilst helping us spread conservation awareness in a fun and inspiring environment, surrounded by like-minded people.

As well as our wonderful animal collection we are lucky enough to have large amounts of untouched land and beautiful gardens, including an area of protected British Ancient Woodland. We also have many activities and special events running throughout the year so there are many ways to be involved helping us to save wildlife together!

The Wild Place Project is looking for hands on, chatty and outgoing individuals that love being outdoors and can encourage guests to become more interested in our habitats, conservation and amazing animals, whilst helping them to have a great day out at our developing guest attraction.

All we ask is that you are available for a regular day each week including school & bank holiday periods, that you can be with us for at least 6 months (unless applying for a seasonal role) and that you live within a reasonable distance.

You need to be aged 18 or over and there’s no upper age limit. References may be applied for.

How to apply

If you’d like to know more and interested in applying, please take a look at our volunteer roles then download and complete our editable volunteer ‘Expression of Interest’ form and post it to us. Please note that the Volunteer Keeper scheme is very popular and so spaces are very limited. If you are not successful for this role, please feel free to consider our other available roles.
