Work Experience and Volunteering

Volunteers play a very important role within our zoos and aquariums. Roles range from helping out front of house with customer service, to events and activities, fundraising or even assisting keepers with their jobs. Our members also sometimes offer work experience to interested young people.

Please note that volunteering at a zoo or aquarium does not always involve working with animals.
