When I first saw this program I was like wow cool volunteering at Steve Irwin's Australia zoo! That Is cool! However I wanted not to volunteer at a sanctuary/zoo. I prefer to work with real wild animals!

When I learned that this program is actually with the Wildlife Hospital of Australia zoo where you help with the care and rehab of native species that will be released back in to the wild I got really excited!

So this I not a zoo caring program and all your efforts go towards the great cause of releasing animals back in to the wild. Some of the species are even endangered!

What I like to tell everyone interested is that this program is great and rewarding but you better be ready to get your hands dirty as quite a bit of cleaning is involved as that is afteral one of the most important tasks especially dealing with sick and weakened animals as they can not handle getting a infection from a dirty cage.

The service Fronteering offered was great though sometimes I took them a few days to respond when I first inquired, but it seems they are just very busy. There staff is very nice and helpful though!

Would you recommend this program?
Yes, I would
