Summary

Animal Health & Welfare

The Fijian archipelago lies scattered lazily in the achingly blue waters of the Pacific Ocean, bathed in the radiant antipodean sunlight. Its towns and villages are veritable melting pots of cultural influences – see multicoloured Hindu temples perched next to relics of the traditional indigenous spirit houses with their lingering sense of an ancient magic.

Its irresistible shores are fringed with picture-perfect palm trees, and the azure waters that surround the islands are inhabited by an astonishing array of marine creatures; over 1,200 species of fish including clown fish, trigger fish, blue tangs, 12 species of whales and dolphin, anemones, soft coral and much more.

Enjoy fragrant sun drenched days and balmy exotic nights – try a Fijian beach party for whirling fire dancers, traditional dancing and delectable food cooked in a traditional underground oven. Fiji will enchant you with its infectious, chilled out “Fiji time” lifestyle and its heavenly beaches – the perfect paradise location for your Fijian adventure!

WHAT WILL I BE DOING?

You will work closely with a local animal welfare charity and will be substantially involved in the day to day running of a large urban animal welfare centre. You may cover activities ranging from cleaning animal cages, caring for stray and abandoned cats and dogs, helping to re-home pets or educating local communities about the importance of animal welfare. Your level of involvement will of course depend on your skills, practical work experience and academic qualifications.

You will be encouraged to bring your own initiative and enthusiasm to the project , whilst also constantly learning from professionals working alongside you. Those with Veterinary experience may be able to involve themselves in minor procedures, whilst those with less experience will be able to take part in the general care of animals and maintenance of the shelter. You will have the choice of either concentrating on a particular aspect of the animal welfare centre you are interested in or work across many different elements. Wherever your goals lie, whether purely in a career in veterinary sciences or just as a personal interest to protect vulnerable animals, this project has something for you. As well as all this, you will discover more about this exotic destination and its people through your work and involvement in the project.
