Volunteering at Bristol Zoo

Looking for voluntary work in Bristol? If you’d like to help with our important education and conservation work, why not join the 250 people who volunteer at Bristol Zoo?

We’re not just looking for people who want to volunteer with animals, but people who can help in lots of different ways such as craft activities, talks with animals, rangers in our walkthroughs, our gardens and many other areas of the Zoo.
