Volunteer with us!

If you have an interest in all things animals, and you're looking to volunteer some of your time, we'd love to hear from you.

We want to accommodate animal team volunteers to ensure both the goals and objectives of the zoo are met, as well as providing training opportunities for volunteers who maintain an interest in captive animal husbandry.

Tropical World will commit to support volunteers with the necessary induction and training to ensure the development of relevant skills and experience.

Volunteers will be given opportunities to learn and develop new skills, meet new people, make industry contacts and get up close and personal with our animals.

Volunteer roles

Duties will involve assisting the animal team with some of the routine day-to-day tasks required to run the Tropical World animal collection. This includes but is not limited to, preparing and distributing animal feed, cleaning animal enclosures and visitor areas, theming animal enclosures, recording environmental data and much much more.

If this sounds like you, request more information and the expression of interest form by emailing Nathan.Wright@leeds.gov.uk.
