What's the project about?

The wildlife centre is Malawi’s only animal sanctuary, with a focus on rescue and rehabilitation. Working alongside a resident team of expert wildlife vets, the sanctuary volunteers get involved with all aspects of animal care, learning new skills and gaining practical experience. Join the animal care team, where work covers the whole rehabilitation spectrum and a range of small animals and birds.

How will I be contributing?

Sanctuary volunteer duties include animal husbandry (cleaning, feeding and enrichment), orphan care, veterinary clinic support and animal observations. Volunteers also get involved with animal integrations, reintroductions and release strategies – the most rewarding part of any stay, as wildlife are released, safe and well, back into their natural environment. Get your hands dirty, work hard and make new animal friends!

What makes this project ethical?

Join an organisation internationally recognised for its work to protect Malawi’s wildlife. Then sanctuary is focused on wildlife rescue and rehabilitation and is widely reputed to be one of the best facilities in Africa for responsible wildlife care and rehabilitation. You can be confident you are joining a genuinely ethical, high impact project, where you will learn best practice from conservation experts.
