Cage building volunteers play a vital role by helping to build outdoor enclosures where wildlife get accustomed to the environment, and learn important climbing and foraging skills. Everyone is welcome to apply as there are plenty of jobs for all skill levels. Cage building projects usually occur on several weekends during the year, and involve half-day, full-day or multi-day projects. All volunteers will receive a personalized tour of the rehabilitation centre where they will be able to see wildlife being fed behind one-way viewing windows. Cage building days include a barbeque lunch and drinks. Cage building days make for great group projects.

Time Commitment

Cage building volunteers serve on a casual basis as their availability allows, but we do ask volunteers to commit to a minimum of four hours on cage building days. We keep a roster of volunteers with their availability and when help is needed, we contact all available volunteers who might be able to participate.
