Volunteering at the Wildlife Rehabilitation & Release Center in KwaZuluNatal, South Africa
         

What experience do you feel you are gaining?

I've learn a lot about what all goes into running and caring for a lot of different types of animals.

What is the best thing about your placement so far?

The hands on experience I got with the young baboons.

Would you recommend this placement to anyone else?

Yes.

What type of person do you think this placement would suit?

A hard worker who loves animals.

Was there anything that you weren’t told before your departure that you think future volunteers should know?

No.

Can you describe a typical day? (e.g. Start time, morning duties, lunch hours, afternoon duties, any other duties…. )

Start at 7am clean bird cages, chop food for all the animals and deliver food to the enclosures. Then cut branches and grass for the animals

Lunch is at 1pm for an hour then repeat the feeding over again for all the animals. You're usually done by 3pm.

Any other relevant comments? (This will help us to maintain the standard of our placements or make any improvements which become apparent from your input).

Yes, tell people what I have listed above or tell them exactly what they will be entering into..
