We are always looking for enthusiastic and passionate volunteers. In exchange for providing of your time, and after the Health & Safety Induction Course, you will receive training in the care and welfare of the birds. Those who show dedication and aptitude will receive further training on handling, and the maintenance of birds and equipment. Those who show the right attitude and dedication will eventually be entrusted with the handling and flying of our hawks and owls. You may well find yourself becoming part of the flying show team.
No one should be under the impression that they will be handling birds within a few days of arriving. There is an awful lot of dirt to clean up for a long time before anyone touches a bird. You need to earn the trust, not only from me, but also from the birds.
Working at the centre and becoming involved with the Owls, Hawks, Falcons and Eagles requires dedication and passion. Working in such an environment is not for everyone.
If you feel you have the time, desire, and passion for such a position, and can operate as part of an enthusiastic and dedicated team, then please contact the centre either by phone or e-mail. The centre is constantly evolving and expanding. It is likely there may be opportunities in the future to become an employee. Becoming a regular and committed volunteer will provide the required background for selection as a likely employee.
