FREEME KZN WILDLIFE REHABILITATION VOLUNTEER PROGRAM

FREEME KZN Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre is an organisation which was established in the Midlands of KwaZulu-Natal, just outside Howick, to handle the rescue, rehabilitation and return to the wild of all injured, orphaned or sick wildlife from an area which covers a large area with diverse climate and vegetation zones from sub-tropical forest and thorn Veld near the coast to the cool temperate misty grassland belts, ending with the harsh climate of the Drakensberg Mountain region, which is subject to snow, big storms and run away fires.

It is an area of huge biodiversity and the Clinic has to be prepared to handle a large number of animal and bird species, including antelope, small and medium predators, raptors, large wading birds and migrants, reptiles, bats, a whole range of smaller bird and mammal species and three varieties of primates.

They run a 24/7 emergency call out and at times these can involve journeys of up to two hundred kilometers at a time.

Your duties as a Rehabilitation Volunteer will include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Daily Feeding
  • Cleaning of enclosures
  • Assisting with basic first aid and assistance with minor surgeries
  • Accompanying Centre staff in the collection of injured animals.
  • Accompanying Centre staff in the release of rehabilitated animals into nearby Game Reserves.
