Volunteer 1200X1200


We thrive through generous volunteers donating their time and talents. Our volunteers and work placement students assist with many varied activities across the site. By joining us you can become part of the team, learn new skills, meet new people and support us in protecting, conserving and rewilding British wildlife.

What we are looking for

  • Enthusiastic and friendly people
  • Happy to be outside in all weather conditions
  • Reliable with regular attendance
  • Good level of physical fitness – you will be on your feet the majority of the day and some tasks will require stamina
  • We’re not looking for experts, just a passion for wildlife and conservation
  • Over 18 years of age

What you need to know before applying

All applicants for volunteering or work experience placements must be over 18 years of age. These opportunities receive a high volume of interest and as a result, places are extremely limited. During busy periods we will only be contacting candidates for departments that require an extra pair of hands. If you do not hear from us within two weeks, please feel free to reapply in a few months' time.

What is included

  • All day park admission
  • Free teas/coffees from our café throughout the day
  • Morning and/or afternoon volunteering tasks to complete around the park
  • All equipment needed to complete tasks on the day
