Wellness Through Nature - Opportunity for veterans at Dartmoor Zoo

Funded and supported in partnership with The Armed Forces Covenant Find Trust and Dartmoor Zoo, the Wellness Through Nature programme is running once a week for 12 weeks with a choice of days available. It's aimed at providing veterans with an opportunity to escape into nature, whatever your stage in life, to learn new skills, have fun, enjoy camaraderie, feel a sense of purpose and establish new friendship, in a unique outdoor setting.


Project areas and tasks included in the programme are:

  • gardening and maintenance including building homes for wildlife

  • animal enrichment including creating toys for the monkeys and big cats

  • learning and development

  • creativity in nature including painting and photography.

In addition to these fantastic projects, those taking part also get a free lunch voucher each day, a free 12 month zoo entry pass on completion and an invitation to a bi-annual celebratory event at the zoo.
