A local conservation charity is saying an extra special thank you to its volunteers this week. The Whitley Wildlife Conservation Trust is the charity that runs Paignton Zoo Environmental Park, Living Coasts in Torquay and Newquay Zoo in Cornwall. Volunteers’ Week, which runs from 1st to 7th June, is a national celebration of volunteers and volunteering. 

Trust spokesperson Phil Knowling said: “As charities, Paignton Zoo, Newquay Zoo and Living Coasts are supported by a team of devoted volunteers. Without the extra time and dedication that our volunteers provide, we wouldn’t receive the same level of support for our work that we do and we wouldn't be able to provide that added ‘extra’ for our visitors. So thank you to everyone who has volunteered with us, is volunteering right now, or might volunteer with us in the future!” 

Paignton Zoo Environmental Park is a registered charity. For more information go to or ring 01803 697500.
