Penguin Rehab & Release has received grants from Burnie City and Wynyard/Waratah Councils to build a penguin rehabilitation facility.
It will be the first of its kind in the north-west of Tasmania, and will be dedicated to rehabilitating Little Penguins and preparing them for release back in to the wild. All birds are cared for by trained and registered carers and under the appropriate permits from Wildlife Management Branch, DPIPWE.
Penguin Rehab & Release is a small group of volunteers based in Burnie, registered with Landcare Tasmania and sponsored by Friends of Burnie Penguins, Inc.
We are looking for people who would be interested in being part of the volunteer work crew. We have an experienced owner builder who is giving his time and expertise to supervise the work, which will occur in 5 phases across 5 days. The work needs to be done on Mondays as this is the day available for the supervisor, and we need a crew of 4 people on each day. It does not need to been the same 4 people each time.
Dates: September 3rd, October 1st, 8th, 15th 2108
