Volunteers make up 100% of our workforce and are the backbone that holds everything together. There are many varied roles for volunteers within our organisation, and you can do as much or as little as you have time for. Please keep in mind that all our volunteers work toward a common end goal – To release rehabilitated wildlife back into the wild as quickly as possible.
Volunteers do not need any previous experience in working with animals as all training is provided. However, in order to volunteer you must be over 16 years of age and we ask that you have a current tetanus vaccination.
As a Volunteer you need to commit to at least 1 shift per month for example: 9.30am to 11.30am at either Possum Finishing School or FAWNA Flight Academy. We ask that you attend at least one fundraising event and at least one skills training course per year.
Please note: There is a joining fee (once only) which covers the administration costs of your membership, incorporating your induction, insurance, identification card, uniform shirt, and lanyard. This Fee is payable on approval of your application by the committee. Lanyard and Shirt will be provided at your first Volunteer shift.
There is also an annual Membership Fee which is invoiced at the end of the financial year.
