Interested in volunteering! Please read below for more information.

Due to Government restrictions regarding COVID-19 we are unable to take on any new volunteers at this time. We will keep you updated as to when the situation changes. Stay safe. 

If you are looking for work experience, please visit our Work Experience page.

We receive over 3,000 native animals that require our care each year. Volunteering is a way of enriching your life; And anyone with an interest in helping wildlife will have an opportunity to learn more about what different species of animals eat, where they live, and how they fit in the picture of urban WA. 



Some examples of the activities our volunteers perform are:

Animal Care

animal careCleaning cages, feeding and treating sick and injured animals, providing enrichment, and more. Our Clinic Manager and Animal Care Team are top notch and offer training in triage, handling, and preparing animals for release back into the wild. We can also provide speciality training for work with Black Cockatoos, Waterbirds, Marsupials and Macropods, and Reptiles.

Administration and reception

If you don’t have the experience or knowledge to care for our animals or just feel more comfortable sitting in an office, then don’t worry you are still able to help and support NAR!


The essential job of answering phones, providing advice, greeting members of the public as they admit wildlife, and data entry are what makes NAR run so smoothly!.


We need handy-people to help us with general maintenance and construction, even to provide some advice about the best way to do things. If you’re a licensed tradesperson, that is even better!
