Details of the day-to-day life on the project:

We are a non-profit organisation that rescues and rehabilitates orphaned, injured, or displaced tree-kangaroos for release back into the wild, or when release is not possible, for life in captivity as breeding animals in zoos for education and conservation.

This program is a great way to see how a Tree kangaroo rescue centre works, as well as learning the skills that are required for successful zoo keeping and wildlife rescue.

 

However, most of the animals in our care are adults so nursing and cuddling joeys may only be a very small part or your volunteer time if at all.

So sorry please do not apply if you think you will be cuddling joeys. Most adult tree kangaroos are not cuddly.

 

Most of the work required by volunteers requires cleaning enclosures, cleaning floors and windows in hospital, feeding, washing up feed dishes, cutting browse and general husbandry. You may be asked to assist in rescues and treatment of injured animals where necessary.

Great experience

Great experience. I have learned a lot about wild animals and the bush. The kids are super. Thanks to Michele and Ian but also I would like to thanks all the volunteers and local people.

Very Good Program

My week at Daktari was excellent and the program is very intense in the sense that we all get together with the kids and animals from 7am until 9 pm. It is an excellent choice for a first volunteering program abroad considering and I would definitely like to go back someday
