You must be at least 14 years old to volunteer for Wildlife Sanctuary (upon registration). Working for wild animals involves discipline and a strong sense of responsibility. In addition, cleaning and managing the enclosures with the animals requires strength and focus, thereby reducing environmental stress for the animal without compromising your safety too.

Likewise, for the Wildlife Rescue programme, you must be at least 21 years old (upon registration) to respond in potentially critical situations and stressful conditions involving wild animal/s and humans.

To participate in the Outreach programme you must be at least 13 years old.
