We have four dedicated wildlife sanctuaries that rely on volunteers to help them care for the large numbers of injured, sick and orphaned animals that come into their care each year. The sanctuaries provide rescue services, medical treatment and a safe refuge for the animals until they are well enough to be released back into the wild. They also provide a permanent home for those animals who are unable to return to the wild due to trauma or ongoing health issues.
Our sanctuary in Perth on Australia's West Coast is run entirely by volunteers. You will meet lots of joeys (baby kangaroos) on this project!
Our Gladstone sanctuary is located at the southern end of the Great Barrier Reef on Queensland's Central Coast. This sanctuary conducts vital research into Australian wildlife and manages a number of captive breeding programs for threatened species. The facility is the only captive breeding facility for Bridled Nailtail Wallabies in the world.
Our sanctuary in rural North-eastern Victoria is located within state forest. You will get up close and personal to lots of animals at this sanctuary and will also meet many ex-residents who have been released and like to come back to visit.
Surrounded by the Grampians National Park in western Victoria, our final sanctuary has recently relocated from southern Victoria where they have been caring for wildlife for over 30 years.
You must be 18 years or over to participate in this project. Placements are available for 2-12 weeks
