As a South Florida Wildlife Center Volunteer, you are vital to the success of the organization’s programs in education, rehabilitation, and conservation. You will interact with an incredibly diverse range of animals and people, whether at the Center or out in the community. You will learn the fundamentals of working at a wildlife center and further develop your knowledge of a diverse range of animals and the laws we abide by to protect Florida’s resources, habitats, and inhabitants.
The purpose of this volunteer program is to offer a wide variety of opportunities to interested people and to provide useful and meaningful service. This will assist Center staff in furthering the goals of The South Florida Wildlife Center, and provide support that would otherwise be impossible due to budget limitations. Not only will you be helping Florida’s wildlife, you’ll enjoy meeting new friends who share similar environmental concerns and gain personal satisfaction that comes from preserving Florida’s native animals.
Volunteers must commit to a minimum of 6 hours per month. Shifts are in 3 hour increments so at least 2 shifts per month are needed to meet the minimum time requirement.
Those under 16 are not eligible to volunteer on SFWC property.
Cannot commit to volunteering on a regular basis? From time to time, we may offer One-Day opportunities at the center or in the local area that will help us tremendously even though its only for one day. Activities may vary and may have a maximum amount of people allowed. Subscribe to be on our email distribution list so we can let you know when these events are scheduled.
