I emailed a wildlife trust about work experience as I want to go into zoology and they emailed back with an official form to fill out. I'm slightly stuck on what to put for the "why do you want to do work experience with us" part, could someone help me out?

Just tell them the truth, that you're looking into studying zoology and you want first-hand experience of what working with animals on a daily (weekly?) basis is like. State what parts of the role you'd be excited about completing by doing work experience with that wildlife trust. Do some research into that specific trust and state that you think it is good the company does X because Y.

Well if you want to do zoology then I assume you have a passion for animals, so write about that. Also, talk about why this wildlife trust in particular- why not a zoo? A dog shelter? Is it because you've seen their work and you admire it greatly? Is it because you want to save wild animals? Do you want to make a difference? Do you want to learn more about animals? Just write anything you can think of regarding your motivation to do this work experience. You could also mention your future plans, and how this is vital to achieve those dreams.
Hope this helps
