International Volunteer Day 2022


On Monday December 5th 2022 organisations all over the world celebrated International Volunteer day!

There are currently more than 500 volunteers at Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary, who work in a diverse range of roles. Without them, we would not be able to complete our day to day operations or manage our world leading conservation programs.

From feeding, cleaning and caring for animals, to greeting guests, we would like to take this opportunity to say a very big Thank You to all of our volunteers.

Their work includes answering your questions about animals and attractions, and helping you feed and interact with our precious animals.

Our Wildlife Volunteers work behind the scenes assisting the Horticulture staff and Wildlife keepers to maintain our horticulture displays or to clean enclosures, feed and enrich our animals so that they remain happy and healthy ambassadors for their wild counterparts.

Currumbin Wildlife Hospital Volunteers may be found working on reception, receiving injured, sick or orphaned wildlife brought in by the public. They also assist our vets and nurses with their life saving work.

There are so many roles that these unsung heroes take on. It can be hard work, and they must be fit, healthy and dedicated. They come from all walks of life, but they have one thing in common – their commitment to and love of Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary and Currumbin Wildlife Hospital!

We are so grateful for our amazing volunteers. Both Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary and Currumbin Wildlife Hospital are busier than ever, and everything we do, would not be possible without the dedication and support of our fantastic volunteers. - Travis Couch  General Manager Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary.
