Volunteer At CROW
Volunteer Opportunities / 241 views
Since its inception, volunteers have been an integral part of our organisation. Feeding and caring for 300-400 animals on a daily basis is no small task, which is why CROW welcomes the skills, experience and enthusiasm of both local and international volunteers at its centre.
Volunteering is a great way to give back to your community, meet new friends and learn new skills! Local volunteers are always very welcome here at CROW, regardless of if you’re looking to volunteer with us regularly or as part of a once-off work experience placement or event.
The only rules for our local volunteer programme are:
- All volunteers must be aged 16 or older (This is due to the nature of our work and for our volunteer’s own safety.)
- All volunteers must be honest, reliable and genuinely interested in getting stuck in to the long list of tasks that are involved in running our centre on a daily basis. (Volunteering at CROW involves mainly physical activities, so we need strong, energetic people who are willing to physically lend a helping hand!)
Please Note: While we aim to give as many people as possible the opportunity to volunteer with us here at CROW, we also want to ensure we can offer you a fun and meaningful volunteering experience – there is nothing worse than a bored volunteer! Therefore on weekends, during school holidays and at other busy times of the year, it may be necessary for us to place a maximum limit on the number of placements we can offer on a first come, first served basis.
CROW is proud to welcome international volunteers to our centre throughout the year. The team at CROW is continually in awe of the many caring individuals from around the world who give up their time and leave their homes and families in order to come help us care for our injured, orphaned and displaced wildlife.
CROW provides an exciting, once-in-a-lifetime volunteering experience where volunteers can not only learn about local wildlife rehabilitation and conservation with all its challenges and complexities, but also work alongside our team on a daily basis assisting with wildlife rescues and releases and taking care of the 300-400 patients that are housed at our centre at any given time.
CROW can accommodate up to 13 international volunteers at a time. Volunteer accommodation is provided on the centre’s grounds which means our volunteers do not need to worry about getting to and from work everyday as the clinic is a mere 200 metres away!
