LOCAL animal lovers are being given the chance to volunteer at one of Bristol’s most popular wildlife and conservation parks.

Wild Place Project, located just off junction 17 of the M5, are looking for people to work as volunteer learning rangers during the 2018 season. As part of the role, they would be required to talk to guests about animals and conservation at enclosures around the site.

Opened by Bristol Zoological Society in 2013, Wild Place Project currently has 95 volunteers including parents, retired teachers, students, health care workers, insurance advisors and sports referees.

Jade Stott, volunteer co-ordinator at Wild Place Project said: “We are looking to attract people from all sorts of background and all sorts of ages from 18 upwards who can help us for half a day on a Monday or Friday each week.” 

Residents who are interested in volunteering will first be invited to an informal meeting to find out more. Experience is not necessary, as long as you have a passion for animals, and training would be given over four weeks.

People can apply to become a volunteer either by ringing 0117 428 5605, emailing volunteers@wildplace.org.uk or visiting http://www.wildplace.org.uk/about-us/volunteers
