All volunteers will need to be inducted before commencing.
We can only accept volunteers over 18 years of age, unless accompanied by a parent or guardian.
Though we don't expect everyone to have special skills, we do expect that you have a reasonable level of fitness so that you can participate in activities like weeding, tree planting, removing fencing etc. Conmurra is situated on a hill so there will be times where some walking or hiking is involved.
Animal husbandry (feeding and handling) can only be conducted under direct supervision so will not be on offer all the time. It is expected that volunteers who want to work directly with the animals will have some prior experience or training in a zoo, wildlife park, vet, pound or animal boarding facility.
All activities are conducted in conjunction with our COVID-SAFE plan.Please note that some activities may have a cap on numbers due to social distancing requirements.
Unfortunately, at this time, we cannot take students needing to complete work placement/experience hours. We understand this is important for people wanting to work with animals and hope to be able to assist in the future so please keep in touch!
