Voluntary service in Florida - The Wildlife Project

Pays d’action: Etats-Unis, Amérique du Nord
Type d’activité: Missions avec animaux et vétérinaires, Ecovolontariat
This project gives you the opportunity to put your energy to good use by contributing to the maintenance of a wildlife sanctuary. The sanctuary is a rescue centre for wild animals which are unable to survive in the wild due to ill-treatment, neglect or abandonment. Here they are given a home and the peace they need to recover and gather strength.

Description du projet et du rôle des volontaires

The wildlife sanctuary relies on the help of volunteer workers to sustain and expand what is a lifelong refuge for so many animals. By participating in this project, you will find that you will grow and rise to the challenge.

Let yourself be carried away by the optimism of the Sunshine Staters and spend an unforgettable time in Florida. You can play an active part on the ground and make a valuable contribution to animal welfare.

During your stay in Florida, you will work up to 8 hours a day. Minor chores are carried out on Sundays. The diverse tasks include preparing the food and feeding the animals, cleaning and maintaining the enclosures and the grounds, as well as assisting with veterinary care. In order to ensure that you have a safe and instructive time, the local coordinators will supply you with curricula and training materials. Direct contact with the animals is forbidden, on the one hand for safety reasons and on the other hand out of consideration for the condition of the animals. The wildlife sanctuary also hosts groups of visitors to raise awareness and inform about animal care and welfare.

It is an unbelievable feeling when – with time and care – you realise the animals are starting to regain confidence and strength. The unique surroundings, the international contacts, the mutual work and the growing success will give you a feeling of utter satisfaction, which you will never forget.

You will be based near the wildlife sanctuary in Silver Springs. You will lodge in furnished accommodation together with other volunteers. Men and women live in separate buildings. The kitchen and washing facilities are available at all times. In the accommodation you will find a toilet, hot shower, electricity, air-conditioning, television and DVD player, as well as a WLAN connection which you can use for your laptop or other WLAN-enabled devices.

Food will be provided but you will have to prepare it. You can cook together with the other volunteers in the kitchen.
