Our volunteering program
Starting every Monday, with a minimum of two weeks commitment, the volunteer programme runs throughout the year.
Seaview Predator Park’s volunteering programme offers experience with a variety of wildlife, all under the supervision of dedicated professionals.
Included in the experience with the animals, is accommodation (wooden cabins,) all meals, laundry services and pick up and drop off at Port Elizabeth Airport.
The volunteers care for all the species at Seaview Predator Park, both indigenous and exotic, and help us to better the lives of all our animals through project time and enrichment programmes. We have endeavoured to house our animals in spacious enclosures, as close to their natural habitat as possible, and we make sure that they get the best veterinarian care.
The volunteers also assist to care for, to rehabilitate where possible, and to be involved in the release of all the animals brought into our sanctuary.
