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.

An amazing project with amazing staff

I work as a travel agent, bringing volunteers to DAKTARI and other projects around the world. After helping a lot of volunteers fulfill their dreams of coming to South Africa, I managed to arrange 2 weeks to spend at the project. What a wonderful time I had starting with the staff who are so friendly and polite, the animals being taken care of as if they were family and the amazing food that was prepared catering to each of the volunteers individual needs. I can only say that if you are looking for an unique and quality experience involving a well thought out educational program and the preservation of native animal species, this is the one for you.
