Volunteering at Cleland Wildlife Park

Our volunteers are invaluable. They help to conserve our park’s beautiful natural surrounds and assist in the care of our animals. Often our volunteers are working hard behind the scenes, while at other times they are the public face of Cleland – either way, their work never goes unnoticed by the staff and the many local, interstate and international guests that visit the park.

Volunteering at Cleland Wildlife Park provides an awesome opportunity to learn new skills, meet new friends and make a difference to the Park and broader community.

Our volunteer programs attract a very diverse age group, and everyone can contribute according to their abilities. While we love youth and enthusiasm, please note that this program is only available to those who are 18 years old and over, and there is no animal handling involved.

Cleland Blitz

The Cleland Blitz is an annual community volunteer day, where families (including supervised children) and individuals can roll up their sleeves and get back to nature. Activities can include cleaning up our kangaroo paddocks (raking, weeding and clearing debris), maintaining our pathways and garden beds, re-mulching enclosures, and pruning / planting native vegetation.

The Blitz is held annually in Autumn, and is advertised through the Cleland Wildlife Park Facebook page close to the date.
