Animal Care in a Wildlife Rehabilitation Center Voluntary Project in Perth, Australia
         

I feel that I have gained a lot of info on the culture of Australia from all the variety of volunteers working there and lots of important information on animal care.

I love all the animals that are so different from home as well as all the colourful and friendly people I have met so far.

I would definitely recommend this placement to anyone interesting in animal care or exploring Australia. Perth has a lot to offer.

I think that this placement would mostly benefit someone looking to enter the animal care field but, being someone who has no plans for that in the future it was still very interesting and fun for anyone who loves animals and it willing to do some hard work.

A normal day at the project was arriving at 8:45. We usually started with cleaning out duck cages or doing the morning feeds for the animals. Of course, it changes day to day.

We usually had lunch from anywhere between 11 to 1 (whenever the morning duties were done) and then we would come back and do the afternoon duties, which included but was not limited to afternoon feeding of the animals, raking out cages, laundry, cleaning dishes, garbage, doing some work around the yard etc.

I think that Travellers has a very good system going with the project and I would definitely recommend it to anyone.

The people are so friendly and nice and they really do need the help as it is entirely volunteers working. This way you are always meeting new people which is fun but you also get to take care of all the animals that so desperately need it.
