Call for zoo volunteers



Up close and personal with an echidna, exchange teacher from the US Peter Mitchell joined about 20 volunteers at the Coffs Harbour Zoo's first training workshop. The workshop aims to help volunteers find future jobs working with animals by providing hands on experience. Volunteers are trained in animal nutrition, enclosure hygiene, behavioural and environmental enrichment, care of young animals and safety at the zoo. After the workshop and regular volunteer work at the zoo, volunteers receive a certificate of attainment. Workshops are held at the zoo on the first Sunday of each month. To become a volunteer at the zoo or for more information on the workshops call 6656 1330. Photo: CHRIS RIX 05040503A
