Help invest a small amount of time and energy to the continuation of our Centre and the care of our birds and animals.

Volunteering opportunities with animals

Are you able to give precious time to the care of these unique native black cockatoos and the continuation of our rescue and rehabilitation centre? Volunteers are the backbone of our organisation and are on site every day, contributing to a great community project.

As well as black cockatoos, we also have galahs, emus, a black swan, kangaroos, wallabies and dingoes on site. All these wonderful animals need daily cleaning, feeding and attention. Below is a non-exhaustive list of what you can help us with: 

Care of clinic patients
Bird feeding
Dingo caring
Kangaroos, emus, peacocks, chicken feeding
Enrichment and care of animal enclosures
Animal transportation
Rescues

Laying foundations and concrete slabs for large aviaries
Welding cages and aviaries
Landscaping areas for the public
Creating walkways and paths
Repairing tools and machinery
Planting out/maintaining garden beds both for vegetable supplies and landscaping
