Volunteer at an animal sanctuary on your gap year and your work could take you all around the world. You could care for animals abroad from kangaroo sanctuaries in Australia to bear sanctuaries in Romania! There are animals in every country that have been abused, neglected and orphaned and need volunteers to nurse them back to health. Not only will this work benefit breeding programs to help threatened and endangered species but it will also restore natural eco-systems.
Volunteers are thought of as active members of the team and your help will be invaluable to the full time staff at the sanctuary. Volunteer responsibilities are vast yet might include helping with food preparation, feeding the animals, maintaining enclosures, observing veterinary procedures and even leading groups on their tours.
Volunteer at an animal sanctuary and you could gain an invaluable insight into the world of animal care which could enhance your work experience and set yourself apart from other candidates when it’s time to start your career.
