Other Skills

We are looking for volunteers that have a passion for wildlife conservation, an ability to work as a team and by yourself, have an upbeat, positive attitude and are committed to achieving the projects goals. Tasks are not particularly physically strenuous, however a fair level of fitness is advised as the climate is hot and humid.

While no specific skills or experience are required, we are looking for volunteers that are highly motivated, have significant drive and able to work independently or as part of a small team after the initial induction and orientation. Our volunteer coordinator is here to assist and support you, but we expect our volunteers to be self directed and motivated in completing your daily volunteer activities.
