A Call For Wild Bird Rescue Volunteers
North Yorkshire Wild Bird Rescue - is now recruiting volunteers to help with its work.
We need volunteers to help feed and care for sick, injured and orphaned wild birds.
Volunteers feed birds, clean cages, transport birds to and from foster homes and release them back into the wild.
It can be hard work but very rewarding for kind and nurturing people who love birds and who want to make a difference in their lives. Training is provided.
In addition, we need individuals who can assist with fundraising, public outreach, building and maintenance of aviary's.
Home Care Volunteers - needed to care for birds in there own homes, work involves: feeding, medical care if needed. Training provided.
Transport Volunteers - to collect and move the birds to a care home or wildlife units.
If you are interested in any of these volunteer opportunities, then please contact us.
We are always in need of volunteers! Prior experience with wild birds and/or other birds is helpful but not necessary.
What is necessary is a love and respect for birds, a willingness to learn and the ability to make a commitment. Because wildlife rescue organisations do not benefit from funding and support as dog and cat shelters, we rely heavily on volunteer help.
Volunteers must be over the age of 18.
Once trained, volunteers must have the ability to work independently and with minimal supervision.
If this sounds appealing to you, then please contact us, and we will send you a volunteer application form.
