Fauna Conservation Volunteer
The main goals of the Fauna Conservation Department are to help protect our local and regional biodiversity, through our wildlife rescue work, breeding programmes and educational projects, which aim to connect visitors with nature and conservation issues.
The focus of our work is:
1. Wild Animal Rescue and Rehabilitation
2. Endangered Species Conservation
3. Specialist Wildlife / Ecological Advisory Services
4. Unique Educational Experiences
We provide opportunities for qualified veterinarians and veterinary students to gain experience with the Fauna Conservation Department Veterinary Hospital.
For those who prefer field work, there are places available to assist our Fauna Staff with surveys including illegal trap searches in Hong Kong’s wild places, and ecological monitoring of threatened habitats.
Wildlife Animal Rescue Centre
Limited places are available for volunteers to assist in the wildlife rescue work. In most cases, we prefer experienced volunteers or medium and long-term volunteers (a month or more of service).
Live Educational Displays
Volunteers can also help in the Live Educational Displays section, where rescued animals that cannot be released back to the wild are maintained and displayed for educational purposes. Volunteers will pick up skills in animal care and providing captive enrichment for exhibit animals.
Education and Administration
For volunteers who are inclined towards office work, we have places available for volunteers to assist our Education Officer. Works would include filing, signage preparation, stocktaking, photography, etc. And for those that would like to be involved in our education programme we have several regular education activities that they can join.
Volunteers may assist with education activities such as our Animal Encounters programme, where visitors are introduced to some of our captive animals at close quarters. We also run an Animal Discovery Table once a month on a Sunday which is manned by volunteers who engage members of the public with animal specimens such as snake skins, skulls and feathers.
