Our volunteer programme provides an opportunity for students and other individuals to gain experience in the care of animals as well as in animal conservation. No animal-related qualifications or experiences are necessary. However, any volunteers who have specialist skills, whether in animal-related or in any other ﬁeld, are a great help to us.
We are a small facility and therefore only able to take two volunteers at the same time. Because of the nature of the work we require a minimum stay of one week and maximum of three weeks.
Main activities volunteers will be involved with are providing enrichment for the animals, feeding the animals and cleaning/maintenance of the enclosures. Other projects, i.e. observing animal behaviour, might be available occasionally. However, handling of animals is not allowed under any circumstances. Volunteers are expected to work for 3-5 hours per day. A typical day is as follows:
Volunteers stay in the main house at the rescue center. Facilities for the volunteers include a bedroom with bunk beds, two toilets, a shower, a small kitchen, where volunteers can prepare their own meals and a social area.
