Work Experience at Dartmoor Zoo

Unfortunately, due to the vast number of work experience applications received, we are no longer accepting any new applications for the year 2020. Please do not send through any more application forms. If you are after a 150-300hr work placement for a college course please email

We do also have spaces available on our Rangers Academy course – click here for more information.

Our placements are 5-days packed full of interesting and engaging activities designed to give our placement students an insight behind the scenes at a modern zoo.

Due to the high volume of applications we receive & nature of the experience that we offer we can only offer work experience to one student in any given week. We therefore cannot promise any placements upon request.
