Learning Ranger Volunteer

Why do we have Learning Ranger volunteers and what do they do?
We want our guests to have a great day out when they visit us; our learning ranger volunteers really make a difference by being welcoming and giving our guests the opportunity to ask questions, and having some amazing fun facts up their sleeve! Learning Ranger volunteers spend their time in our lemur walkthrough and around our other exhibits such as gelada, cheetah and okapi where they engage informally with our guests using props and bio facts, helping to answer questions and making sure both guests and animals are behaving themselves! There will also be opportunities to learn easy face painting designs which is a great extra skill to learn too!

Who are we looking for?
Friendly confident people, who are at ease speaking to guests and able to relate to all ages.
Available during school holidays.
Reliability and regular attendance. We ask you to commit to either a morning or afternoon session, on a regular day each week that suits you for at least 4 – 6 months.
We’re not looking for experts, just an interest in wildlife and conservation, and of course, people!
We look for volunteers who are flexible, enjoy learning new things and keeping up to date.
People who want to learn how to do easy face painting designs.

What’s in it for you?
By becoming a Seasonal Learning ranger volunteer you can…
Meet new people and make new friends.
Try something completely different.
Spend quality time away from work or a busy lifestyle.
Gain a valuable insight into our conservation work.
Expand your knowledge of wildlife and conservation.
Enhance your communication and customer service skills.
