The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
The Toucan Rescue Ranch is looking for an intern to work with Ranch staff and other volunteers to complete the daily feeding and care of the over 170 animals living at the Ranch. This intern has primary responsibility for ensuring animals are fed and enclosures are clean. Working closely with the kitchen supervisor, who is responsible for food preparation, this intern participates in the feeding and cleaning, and provides direction to volunteers helping with these activities.
You will be working alongside volunteers and TRR’s small staff. You will be asked to do various activities and have several responsibilities.
Feed long-term resident animals including raptors
Identify and communicate enclosure repairs needed including replacing perches
Train new volunteers
Help with food preparation
