Care for animals in Lok Kawi Wildlife Park, Many species are endangered, so the Wildlife Park has a very important role in educating the public in conservation and awareness of environmental issues. Some of the native species at the Wildlife Park include Orang-utans, Proboscis Monkeys, Pygmy Elephants (including two very charming baby Elephants) and a Pygmy Rhino. Also Tigers, a Clouded Leopard, Gibbons, Otters, Sun Bears, Giant Tortoise, Mouse Deer, Ostrich, Civets and a fantastic Aviary complete with talking birds.
The Wildlife Park is a cross between a traditional Wildlife Park and a Zoo, many people refer to it as a modern Zoo. The Park's main aims are to:
Not only will the Wildlife Park strive to achieve these objectives but also to provide educational opportunities for locals, foreigners and schools, diversify the local economy and utilize local manpower.
Many Western Zoos take a hands-off approach, where even keepers have very little direct hands on contact with the animals. At Lok Kawi, keeper and animal interaction is an important part of keeping the animals well looked after and healthy. Your role will be to assist keepers in their daily duties in looking after the animals, however, not all of the animals are tame and therefore you'll only be allowed hands on contact with some of the animals.
Working hours are generally between 8.00am - 12.00am and 2.00pm - 5.00pm. You will assist on a rotation system within the areas listed below:
