Current Volunteer Roles


In Easter 2018 we will be opening our 'World of Dinosaurs' attraction and are looking for volunteers to take roles as 'Dino-Guides'.

Information Gazebo

We are looking for zoo volunteers to man our busy gazebo during the summer period. Supplying information about animal experiences, annual membership, kids’ parties and other activities we provide here at Paradise Wildlife Park. We would like outgoing people with good communication skills and happy personalities, able to be in a loud and busy environment and can use their own initiative in any given situation.

Conservation Cabin

Our conservation cabin is situated in the middle of the park, opposite the Red Pandas and next to the Big Cats. It is staffed exclusively by volunteers, with all profits going to support conservation projects ranging from endangered species and habitats to native British Wildlife.

The role involves:

  • A full range of retail activities, including arranging displays, serving customers, pricing and restocking, and cash management.
  • Engaging with customers to explain our fundraising purpose, conservation objectives and achievements to date.
  • Acting as an information point for visitors needing directions or assistance.
  • Helping to ensure all visitors have a most enjoyable day.
  • Optionally, Conservation Team Volunteers have the opportunity to attend and assist at a range of special events organised throughout the year to raise awareness of, and funds for, specific conservation projects.
  • All Conservation Team Volunteers are welcome to attend the monthly team meetings and contribute to the running of the group.
