Work experience at the zoo

Work experience is really important if you’re looking for a career working with zoo animals.

Work experience at Folly Farm

Due to the current covid-19 pandemic we are unable to accept work experience applications. As soon as it is safe to do so, we will be taking applications for Summer 2021. Keep checking back for updates!

Research projects

We also allow research projects to be carried out at our zoo.

Zoo Membership

We're proud to be members of the British and Irish Association of Zoos and Aquariums (BIAZA) and the European Association of Zoos and Aquaria (EAZA). Our membership means we share knowledge with leading zoos across the UK and Europe, and we learn from them too.
