    Cleland Wildlife Park - animal management volunteers

    Ongoing

    Animal management volunteers work closely with the keeper staff at Cleland Wildlife Park helping with the care and husbandry of our captive native wildlife population. While there is no direct handling of the animals volunteering at Cleland can be a worthwhile and rewarding experience. Some of the tasks may include food preparation and cleaning of the food prep area, cleaning exhibits and enclosures, and creating behavioural and environmental enrichment tools.
