We received some great feedback from Prudy Chik who volunteered at the Animal Conservation in a Wildlife Park in Bunbury placement in Australia;


“It is time to comment on my placement.  As a retired nurse, the experience in the park is quite unique and unforgettable.
 
1) What experience do you feel you are gaining?
Preparing food stuff for birds, kangaroos and emus; feeding birds and mammals, and cleansing cages;
2) What is the best thing about your placement so far?
To have a chance interacting with birds and kangaroos; meeting new friends who are nice and helpful;
3) Would you recommend this placement to anyone else?
Yes, if they like birds and kangaroos;
4) What type of person do you think this placement would suit?
All types of people as long as they do not mind getting their hands dirty;
5) What, if any, improvements could be made to the placement? 
To arrange accommodation closer to the park as it takes two hours walk daily;
6) Was there anything that you weren’t told before your departure that you think future volunteers should know? 
Advise them to work 3 days per week as the work is quite physically demanding and they will have no time to enjoy the beauty of Bunbury after a day of work;
7) Can you describe a typical day? 
Everyday starting at 8am, take about an hour walking from Dolphin retreat to the park, start feeding and cleansing from 9am till noon, take half an hour for lunch, then put fruit on branches and feed the boobooks , do cleansing again whenever required, usually leave at 3pm if the jobs of the day finished, and take another hour walk to home;
 
I have lots of wonderful memories in the park. The staff Chris and Amanda, volunteers Rob and Kathy, they are friendly and helpful. I cherish their friendship and appreciate their support and guidance”
Work with animals, birds, plants, ecosystems, tourism and more, in an organisation that is dedicated to conserving Australia’s threatened wildlife and ecosystems. There are over 60 varieties of native birds and marsupials. Popular activities are hand-feeding the kangaroos that roam freely around the Park and hand-feeding the parrots | Travellers Worldwide

"For many people, visiting game reserves is all about ticking off the Big Five. But what about those animals you’ve got almost zero chance of seeing? Justin Fox drew up a list of South Africa’s five most elusive mammals … and set off to find the Cape mountain leopard, aardvark, pangolin, white lion and riverine rabbit. The result of his adventures is a recently published book, The Impossible Five, and Justin gives us some insights into his search in this gallery of the five elusive creatures" 
South Africa's most elusive mammals.

Teach 230 eager-to-learn children from 6 villages at a school in Samraong which provides free education.
You'll teach the children English in an informal way and also help in other activities, (like helping them in their own vegetable patches!). You'll have lots of flexibility and your creativity is encouraged, e.g. helping the children with drawing, singing etc.

Last night there was a late night visitor caught on the camera traps at the main lodge. Who knows which big cat this is?

The banner making program at the youth development centre volunteer placement in Knysna;
“This banner is now in its final phase before the handover to a local old age home in Knysna. It is an outcry from the youth for a safer community where women in particular are being respected and honoured for their contribution. It is through their unselfishness that we have what we have-a community. Through this banner the youth express their gratitude and respect towards the women in our society”

“In our kitchen, we try not to use artificial ingredients. Instead, we'll use ingredients and food that you'd find in the jungle, like yucca and banana. That’s what jungle food is!”
