Volunteering time

Unfortunately we have just limited volunteer positions available and cannot guarantee a placement if you have not applied in time or if some documents are missing. Make sure to check our document list.

We work 7 days a week from dawn to sunset. The animals never give us a break, however we give you a break from them 🙂

Volunteers work with us 6 hours per day in exchange for a unique experience, food allowance and accommodation.

Volunteers can decide if they want to work 5 or 7 days per week.

Food allowance is for:

  • 5 days 80,- per month
  • 7 days 150,- per month

Please read here more about the volunteer payments!

Volunteers need to sign in for all duties in our book, otherwise your effort will not be considered as work and cannot be claimed towards your second working holiday visa or work experience.

We offer sometimes paid project work in the afternoons which will be not calculate towards your volunteering hours.

We have a waiting list for our volunteer positions. Make sure that you apply in advance to reserve your space!
