If you are interested in undertaking a Voluntary Work Experience Placement at the Welsh Mountain Zoo please read the information below carefully. As you can imagine there is a huge demand for such placements and we do not have the capacity to meet every request for a placement.

Our Voluntary Work Experience criteria is as follows:

  • We do not accept students under the age of eighteen.
  • Students over the age of 18 must be enrolled on an animal care, education or horticulture (or similar) vocational course.
  • Undergraduates must be enrolled on a course which is relevant to the scientific/conservation/education/research role of the Welsh Mountain Zoo.
  • All students must be self funded.
  • The minimum and maximum periods of time for voluntary work experience placements are as follows:
    • Animal Department – min 4 consecutive weeks, max 12 months
    • Education Department – min 1 week, max 12 months
    • Gardening Department – min 1 week, max 12 months

Please also note:
