Care for Animals in a Wildlife Sanctuary Voluntary Project on the Garden Route in South Africa
         

What experience do you feel you are gaining? Hands on working with nice people. See and touch animals you just know from zoo or TV.

What is the best thing about your placement so far? All of it :-)

Would you recommend this placement to anyone else? Yes, definitely.

What type of person do you think this placement would suit? You: shouldn't complain everything, don't mind to become dirty, not be afraid of animals or birds, and be prepared that you are expected to work and to help other people with their jobs when you have finished yours.

What, if any, improvements could be made to the placement? It would be great, if the volunteers had a pc at their disposal.

Was there anything that you weren’t told before your departure that you think future volunteers should know? That you have to cut up rough meat from cowlegs or the backbone of cows/ calfs

Can you describe a typical day? (e.g Start time, morning duties, lunch hours, afternoon duties, any other duties…. ) We start the food preparation at 7am. When everything is tidy we have breakfast at about 8.30am. Then the am-jobs are dispersed. At 1pm we have lunch (Sandwiches, soup, salad etc.). At 2am we start food preparation for the pm-feeding. After that we do the pm-jobs like feeding the chickens or top-up aviary water. Usually we are finished with everything at 5pm. Ten we go to have a shower and after that we have lunch at 6pm. We go to bed quite early at about 9pm.
