We are a couple dedicated to the rehabilitation and release of orphaned kangaroo joeys (mainly eastern greys). The babies come to us quite small and require feeds every 4 hours, time outside having excercise or just for a walk in the sunshine. The joeys we have in care range from this size to bigger ones that are on 2 or 3 bottles per day and a whole heap of semi released adults.
There is a lot of work keeping a clean and safe environment for the kangaroos so even though feeding and cuddles are very important, it is only a small part of the job as there is lots of cleaning to do (we pick up poo at least 4 times every day!). Bedding needs to be checked and cleaned, the house needs to be kept clean, water dishes cleaned & filled and the list goes on and on.
It will be beneficial if you are able to cook and help and sometimes cook the evening meal.
We can offer your own double bedroom and bathroom in the house.
