Organisation: International Primate Rescue

Country: South Africa

Type: Environment & Wildlife Conservation

Food Prep We are looking for an enthusiastic, determined and dedicated person to join us here at International Primate Rescue in the role of Food Preparation. This is a voluntary position for the minimum of 12 months. You would be responsible for the preparation of all the food for over 100 primates daily. Most of your day would be spent in the kitchen doing the preparation, cleaning etc. You will have limited interaction with the primates during working hours, but there are capuchin enclosures right by the kitchen door. The kitchen is in the hub of the Sanctuary and is close to the enclosures, this is where all the volunteers meet for the various tasks in the day. This role is ideal for someone who wants to gain experience within a rescue centre environment. In your lunchtime, after work and days off you can get to know all our primates personally. All long term volunteers are required to do morning feeds and bowl collection 2-3 times per week.
