Being keen to learn is essential. In the beginning, you will mainly perform basic tasks, and assist a more experienced ESC-volunteer. Do take in mind that at our centre everyone should undertake all sorts of work: feeding and weighing the animals, assist the staff, preparing food, but also cleaning cages, washing-up, folding dried towels and mop floors. You have to pursue administrative discipline and follow certain hygienic procedures. Being flexible is essential since wildlife does not have a clock to follow. During your project, you will learn how to rehabilitate all types of birds and mammals, how to carry out fluid therapy, tube animals and how to help oiled wildlife. You will work together with a big group of motivated volunteers (locals, interns, older people), where a good team spirit is important.
