Can you see yourself...
  • being part of a cause that means the world to wild animals in need?
  • rubbing shoulders with like-minded people who have a passion for wildlife?
  • talking to visitors from all over the world?

Volunteers make the world go 'round at NIWRA!

What is the perfect role for you?

Gift Shop - Front Desk: located in the main building, this position is the first contact with our visitors. Volunteering in the Gift Shop is a great fit for someone who enjoys interacting with visitors and has previous retail and customer service experience.

Education Program: have fun while you lead school and community groups on tours of the centre. This position is a great fit for those who enjoy interacting with visitors.

Grounds and Yard: help our yard crew look after our meticulously manicured grounds. This position is a great fit for someone who likes working outside.

Wildlife Garden Host: see to the needs of our Wildlife Garden's well-being and greet garden visitors. This position is a great fit for someone with a green thumb and who loves learning about plants.

Animal Transport: we are always looking for volunteers to transport animals between other locations and our facility.

Animal Care: volunteers who work in our Animal Care department do a variety of tasks to care for our animals and enclosures. Animal Care volunteers are often chosen from experienced education volunteers who have demonstrated a commitment to our programs and have logged hours being trained and mentored by our staff.

We ask that prospective volunteers commit to one four-hour shift per week and are willing to get a Police Information Check.
