This great volunteer project is located on beautiful Vancouver Island in. You will have the opportunity to help, rescue and rehabilitate orphaned and injured animals? They are in need for help all year round. This wildlife centre specializes in the care and rehabilitation of Black bears and raptors. The work with the wildlife on the centre is physically demanding and it is by no means an’ easy holiday option’! The minimum duration of stay is 8 weeks with a maximum duration of 12 weeks. This gives the animals a chance to get to know and trust you, and it requires a little time to learn their routine.
This is why:
Volunteers and Interns are the backbone of the organization. It is these individuals, who give freely of their time, that make caring for all the animals possible. The wildlife shelter is run by a dedicated group of volunteers.
Working at a Wildlife Rehabilitation Center can be very intense at times because of the hours we sometimes have to keep. There may be evening feedings. Volunteers will be expected to be involved in all aspects of the shelter. Your job will include feeding, food preparation, cleaning, laundry, administering treatment, participating in building projects, painting, etc...
