To be a volunteer you must be over 18 years old and be willing to help out wherever necessary. The idea of our volunteerships is to give you a taste of everything that’s going on, so you’ll have the freedom to join in with anything that takes your fancy. You can also sign up for a specific project which interests you, but even if you sign up as a mammal volunteer doesn’t mean you can’t help out with community outreach.
