The Hepburn Wildlife Shelter is calling for reliable and caring volunteers from across the shire to help out with general duties at the shelter. New volunteers are trained to perform a variety of important tasks, from rescuing and feeding injured wildlife, to fund-raising and promoting the shelter. New volunteers begin with short 2hr shadow shifts and light duties, working under the guidance of experienced volunteers as they do their daily rounds.

There's a huge variety of indoor/outdoor, administration & outreach jobs:

  • Washing & drying laundry
  • Feeding native animals & birds
  • Preparing milk bottles for infant mammals
  • Sweeping & disinfecting floors
  • Cleaning enclosures, pens & cages
  • Rescuing injured & displaced animals
  • Collecting & distributing donation tins
  • Fundraising activities, promotions & stall management
  • Small building projects, gardening and maintenance (see shelter projects)

To arrange for an introductory volunteer shadow shift, please phone Jason Beks on mobile: 0401 540 546.
