Volunteering at Bonorong

There are many ways to help out at Bonorong - keep reading for more information!

1. manual tasks

Basic manual tasks such as grass raking, weeding, cleaning out path gutters – there's no end to the tasks that need completed around Bonorong!

You can volunteer as few or as many hours as you like, and are welcome to come by yourself or with a team of friends (or work colleagues!)

Please contact us so we can arrange available date/s and time/s.

Please note there is no involvement with animals apart from our free-roaming kangaroos.


3. Become a wildlife Rescuer

We're always looking for volunteers for our wildlife rescue program! Once trained and registered, you'll receive SMS messages about wildlife in need in your area.

If you have time, you can respond to the message and help out. If not - you can simply ignore the message. This gives you the flexibility to volunteer when you can.

Find training dates and more information.
