Volunteer animal caretaker / naturalist:
We welcome volunteers in animal care and environmental education all year round .
Volunteering in animal care consists of accompanying a trainer, in order to take care of the residents of the park (feeding, cleaning, development and observation).
The second volunteering consists of following the educational team in order to welcome, inform and show the animals of the park to a large public. The aim is to make visitors aware of local plant and animal species. Educational activities are carried out in a framework that promotes learning with various approaches such as the presence of mediators in the park, fun workshops, guided tours and educational activities for children's classes.
If you are interested in this activity, you can send us your motivations to the following address: firstname.lastname@example.org .
An interview and training days are carried out before the integration of the volunteer into the team.
