Q: How old do I have to be to volunteer?
A: The minimum age for our volunteer roles is 18 years, which is set by Society Policy and unfortunately has no flexibility. There is no maximum age limit.
Q: Do you have any vacancies at the moment?
A: We cannot advise which vacancies we currently have so please apply for the role/s in which you’re interested.
Q: Do I need qualifications to become a volunteer?
A: No, but the more relevant experience and qualifications, and perhaps most importantly, enthusiasm you have the better.
Q: I am very interested in becoming a Learning Ranger but feel I don’t know enough information about your animals.
A: We provide volunteers with information on our animals and our conservation campaigns
Q: If I volunteer will this lead to a job in the Society?
A: The experience gained through volunteering will help when it comes to applying for jobs and for interviews. But you would still have to apply and compete for any job.

A: We would like a minimum of six months for volunteering unless you are applying for a seasonal role.
Q: Do you pay travel expenses?
