  • Dedication to our cause, we only take volunteers who are willing to commit to at least one shift per week and be true to that commitment each week. 
  • We encourage people from all walks of life and previous professions however we often find students undertaking a degree in zoology, veterinary or environmental studies get the most benefit from working with our organisation as it affords them great animal handling experience, a better understanding of the natural world and is a great addition to their resume.
  • Volunteers must be 17 years and over due to Work Health and Safety issues
