Nursery Assistant 4 weeks
We are looking for hardworking, mature, flexible, and healthy volunteers for our Nursery.
Workplace: Jaguar Rescue Center Nursery in Playa Chiquita
Minimum stay: 1 month
Professional skills: non required
JRC rehabilitates injured, sick, and orphaned animals and releases those who are restored to good health back to their natural habitat. With a focus on monkeys, sloths, other mammals, birds, and reptiles the JRC provides veterinary services, round-the-clock care, and comfort to animals that would otherwise be unable to survive in the rainforest or the sea of the Caribbean. In 2022 we received 966 animals.
You will be part of a team of approx. 5 nursery assistants, long-term volunteers and staff. We expect that you have carefully given thought to, and are comfortable with the sometimes-stressful environment of working full-time in an ICU facility, before applying for this position.
Volunteer duties include, but are not limited to:
- Cleaning enclosures.
- Stocking (i.e. food items, medical supplies, cleaning supplies, etc).
- Deep clean enclosures, cages/carry boxes.
- Prepare enclosures for new arrivals.
- Cleaning facilities, tools, equipment, etc.
- Preparing food plates and bottles.
- Babysitting/foster caring.
