Come and experience Volunteering for just a day – help your community, talk to people and spend some time around our native animals. Come and volunteer for an iconic Gold Coast not-for- profit organisation. You may be wishing to try out volunteering just for fun, or maybe before committing to one of our long term volunteer programs. There are two choices if you wish to volunteer for a day. Both options are suitable for individuals or groups.
