Animal Welfare: Assist with hands-on care for wildlife where you'll play a meaningful and active role in a Sanctuary that provides a refuge for rehabilitated but un-releasable injured and orphaned animals.

Australia has some of the world’s most unique wildlife, with many species found only in this country. This makes wildlife conservation in Australia incredibly important. Here you'll make a real contribution to the conservation of Australia’s weird and wonderful wildlife as you work alongside the rangers at a local sanctuary.

You'll assist the park rangers with general animal care. You'll help with crucial maintenance of the fox-proof fence to keep the animals safe from introduced predators.

Bush care and regeneration work to preserve healthy habitat for the animals and to save endangered plant species, are just some of the environmental projects that you'll get involved with. Mending fences and maintaining enclosures takes on a magical aspect when you’re accompanied by free-ranging trusting inquisitive wildlife!

Much of the animal care work involves cleaning, feeding and maintaining the animals’ enclosures and their natural bush habitat, pulling weeds and collecting litter.

SAMPLE SCHEDULE:
After having breakfast at the Center, you'll travel to the park by train to the Sanctuary. You'll engage in your daily tasks at the project. You' have a lunch break and a packed lunch will be provided for you to have at the project.

After completing your day’s work, you will return to the Volunteer Center in Beecroft by train for a well deserved rest.

Your daily tasks will include:

  • assisting the park rangers with general animal care
  • helping with crucial maintenance of the fox-proof fence to keep the animals safe
  • regeneration work to preserve healthy habitat for the animals and to save endangered plant species
  • joining activities such as hand pulling of weeds and collecting litter
  • cleaning, feeding and maintaining the animals’ enclosures and their natural bush habitat

Training: You'll be given training over 1-2 days before starting work on the project. This training will be included during the first week and may be ongoing as new tasks arise.

  • An exciting opportunity to travel, see the world and experience a foreign culture first-hand.
