Ways you can volunteer

Volunteering opportunities exist across a broad range of activities. These can range from scientific surveys (involving activities such as setting up and clearing traps, survey work and walking transects), land management (weeding, fence maintenance, clearing tracks) and general sanctuary maintenance (painting, repairs).

Other important information

Volunteer activities can be physically demanding and may involve repetitive activities (such as lifting, carrying, pushing and pulling loads, digging, bending, climbing, walking over extended periods) and are often performed in extreme conditions with temperatures at times exceeding 40 degrees. Therefore a moderate to high level of fitness is generally required for most volunteering activities. All volunteers should carefully consider the fitness requirements and remoteness of the volunteering activity they are interested in and seek any appropriate medical advice before deciding on whether to apply.
