Tropical Wings Zoo Long-Term Volunteers
Tropical Wings Zoo is an up and coming Zoological collection with a diverse range of species and a diverse range of guest experiences. 2015 is bringing a new phase of initiatives and developments focused around Conservation, Education and Research programmes. We pride ourselves on providing an exceptional guest experience and our aim is to be one of the best small interactive attractions in the UK.
We currently have 6 opportunities for long term Volunteers for a period of 6 – 12 months assisting within our animal management departments.
The opportunities will be a recommended 3-4 days a week, with an 8.30am start and a 4.30 – 5.30pm finish depending on the time of year.
The long term volunteers will receive exceptional training and also assist in the husbandry requirements of the collection as directed by an assigned mentor.
All long term volunteers are unpaid; however there is the option, depending on your circumstances for reasonable expenses to be paid, such as travel costs if these are accrued. These opportunities provide valuable experience for people from all backgrounds; a training agreement will be completed and reviewed regularly and a training record will be provided upon completion of the placement.
Long term volunteers can partake in monthly onsite workshops and training ranging from animal handling and restraint, Nutrition, enclosure design, Enrichment, and even Zoo licensing and legislation.
