Noah’s Ark Zoo Farm is growing

28 Jan 2020


The North Somerset Zoo is expanding, looking to add over thirty new seasonal and permanent staff members to their team with job opportunities ranging from animal keepers, park rangers and welcome team assistants through to roles in catering, cleaning and gardening.  

They are looking for enthusiastic and committed people with a keen focus on customer service.
Even better, for every member of staff they hire, the zoo will plant a tree as part of their ‘Go Even Greener’ initiative. The zoo will be planting a variety of tree species, including Oak, Hornbeam, Beech and Silver Birch and they will be planted in the conservation area at the zoo. During the past twenty years, Noah’s Ark has planted over twenty thousand trees as part of its conservation work to encourage wildlife and to provide a sustainable source of browse for feeding its animals including African elephants and giraffes.

Noah’s Ark is expanding with a new leader at the helm, Larry Bush. The son of the owners, Anthony and Christina, Larry brings experience from a twenty-five year career in international business and most recently as a director of fair trade organization, Traidcraft. He returned to the west country to become the new Managing Director in September 2019 and has plans for growing the zoo in the future.

“We’re delighted that so many people already love coming to Noah’s Ark as visitors, members, schools and volunteers. Our plan is to extend our welcome so that even more people can enjoy getting up close to our amazing animals and experiencing the fresh air, countryside and adventurous play that we offer. Part of our plan to be more accessible is to be open seven days a week from April through until Autumn half-term.”

Noah’s Ark Zoo Farm will be opening seven days a week from Sundays 5th April until the 1st November – an extra 31 days during 2020.
