We take the responsibility of training and supporting volunteers seriously, which means there can only be a maximum of two Keeper Volunteers in each day. This scheme also receives a high volume of applications, so places are extremely limited.
If you are interested in volunteering with us, we ask that you consider some of the other volunteering opportunities to avoid disappointment.
Having volunteer support means we are able to do additional, but important, tasks such as more behaviour observation and creating more enrichment activities for the animals.
Keeper Volunteers provide valuable support to our Animal Department. If you’re passionate about zoological collections and don’t mind getting your hands dirty, then this is the volunteer role for you!
Our Keeper Volunteers work closely with Keeper staff to assist with the day-to-day husbandry of our animals. A standard day may include enclosure cleaning, diet preparation and enclosure maintenance. There are also opportunities to get involved talking to our guests by assisting with the lemur walkthrough and helping other departments.
