Planning your OE?Welcome to International Working Holidays
At a glance:
Wildlife Sanctuary in 1998.
- The difference between wild and domestic animals (and which make good pets)
- What animals belong in Hawaii?
- How we communicate with animals without even speaking
- EXTINCT means gone FOREVER
- Now that these animals are here, how do we care for them?
- Our school program starts in the classroom with several teaching sessions and then follows-up with a field trip to the sanctuary.
- We are also fortunate to have offers from a number of other animal experts who are willing to participate in the teaching program as guest speakers from time to time.
What will I be doing at the project?
- You will help care for our exotic animals on the Big Island of Hawaii
- The project is located closely to a paradise vacation village
- The centre is situated between the mountains and the oceans, so there is something for everyone
- There will be loads of photo opportunities!
- You’ll get to live and volunteer alongside other volunteers from around the world plus local Hawaiians, a great opportunity to learn culturally.
- Working with wildlife & exotics at the wildlife sanctuary is rewarding but physically demanding, and it is by no means an ’easy holiday option’!.
- The accommodation is on a beautiful ranch with ocean view and a swimming pool!
- You will live on site of the project with the family and includes your own bedroom, laundry facility in the house, internet and TV.
- There are usually 2 other international volunteers with you at a time.
- 3 meals included perday
- You have several hours of time off each day plus two days a week to enjoy all the Big Island has to offer – hit the beach and top up that tan!
- You’ll also be collected from the local airport.
- Please note: For the the shorter (3 week) vet student summer block (filled for 2018), meals aren’t included but you will be cooked about 5 dinners a week.
