Volunteer at a wildlife sanctuary

Wildlife sanctuaries in Ireland are mainly run entirely by full and part time volunteers and are dependent on the generosity of the general public through donations of both time and money in order to be able to carry out their great work.

Give them a hand; use the contacts page on website and contact the individual / sanctuary that interests you



Carpentry/Electrical/Computer skills?

Wildlife need cages, aviaries, heating, lighting and increasingly the organisations rely heavily on computers for communication, fundraising etc. If you think you can help, give your local wildife sanctuary a call.

Do you live in a secluded countryside location, away from main or secondary roads, bordered by fields or forest, in an area where hunting is prohibited, near water of some kind i.e. river/lake/pond?
