Recruiting Organization: WorkingAbroad Projects

Join a team of passionate individuals and get hands-on experience working in the treatment, care and release of sick, injured and orphaned native mammal species of British Columbia’s Southern and Lower Mainland.

During your stay, you will participate in all sorts of tasks to help care for the sick/injured animals, residents, at the centre. You will get involved with a wide range of tasks such as feeding, release and community engagement.

Langley, BC, Canada is surrounded by the Campbell Valley Regional Park and farmland. By car, it is about twenty minutes from Vancouver city centre and ten minutes from the Canadian/American border. British Columbia has vibrant forests, craggy mountain peaks, glacial lakes, and an expansive coastline making it an amazing area to explore for nature lovers. This means you can see a huge array of flora and fauna from whales to black bears!

Two days off are given per week, however not typically consecutive. Proximity to the National Park means hiking and exploring the wilderness is an option, along with relaxing at the rescue centre/swimming in the pool in the summer.

Activities interns will be involved with:
  • Animal feeding and water provision
  • Animal enrichment activities
  • Community engagement sessions e.g. school trip educational talks
  • Enclosure care and maintenance
  • Animal releases
