Volunteer Team

The Role of the Ranger Red’s Zoo & Conservation Volunteer Team

Joining the Ranger Red’s Zoo & Conservation Park Volunteer Team is a valuable first step for enthusiastic, hard-working individuals who are looking to further their passion for conservation. As a member of the Ranger Red’s Zoo & Conservation Park Volunteer Team you will be working alongside our dedicated and professional staff to engage and inspire the zoo public. Members of the Volunteer Team function as zoo ambassadors in a variety of settings: at the zoo, as part of our Zoo2U program, and at special functions and events. As member of the team you will be involved in every stage of our entertaining education programs. Therefore, you are required to liaise with guests, guide tours at the zoo, assist in our mobile Zoo2U program, and support our staff in preparation and planning education programs.

While we take wildlife and conservation education very seriously, we also believe this education should be fun. In short, our teaching philosophy is founded on the fact that ‘fun is memorable’. That’s why we define our programs as “hands on education”.

Other duties may include enclosure upkeep, diet preparation and feeding. Every day is different as a member of the Volunteer Team!
