Zoo calls for volunteers

London Zoo looks to recover from lockdown financial crisis

02 August, 2020

LONDON Zoo has called for “an army of volunteers” to sign up to help it recover from the coronavirus crisis.

The animal attraction in Regent’s Park is looking for people who can commit to offering at least a half day every fortnight.

Roles will include helping visitors around three new one way trails around the zoo.

Volunteer Manager Rhiannon Green explains: “We are delighted to have the zoo open again, but we are facing operational challenges that are new to us. We know from the heart-warming response to our fundraising appeal that people really want to help us.”

“For some people sparing time might be how they can help us best – especially those on furlough, or whose travel plans have been disrupted. We need cheery, flexible people who can help visitors enjoy their day while respecting the measures that keep everyone safe.

Anyone who can spare the time to help the zoo through these challenging times can visit to register their interest, with posts available at both London and Whipsnade Zoos.
