This experience gives you the opportunity to work in two different Wildlife Centres in two different locations. It gives a wide experience of how conservation is conducted.


► Varied and fascinating Wildlife Rehabilitation work where you'll help all types of animals throughout the whole of Perth. You'll work at the Rehabilitation Centre in Perth, as well as on various different projects throughout the city. These projects can range from a national park, to the river or coast, from Wetlands, beaches and possibly Perth Zoo, to working in schools or in an urban park.

► Work in a Wildlife Park located in a beautiful town on the coast south of Perth that has over 60 varieties of Australian native birds and marsupials. Popular activities in the Park are hand-feeding the free range kangaroos that roam freely around the Park and entering into the large free-flight aviary (for the brave) to hand-feed the parrots!

Australia is one of the most biologically diverse countries in the world, with a large portion of species endemic to Australia. Preserving this wealth of biodiversity is important for future generations. Thought of by many as one of the worlds last wildernesses, Australia is home to a unique and fragile ecosystem that needs our help and protection.

These two exciting projects will enable you to contribute your time and skills to help the environment, broaden your life experience and work with others who share your love of nature! If you're looking for a broad experience then this project is your answer.
