Volunteer With Us
UPDATE - FEBRUARY 2021: We are now accepting volunteer applications for our Monkeyland-KZN sanctuary only. For more information about this programme, please contact Paula, our Volunteer Coordinator or check out the information on our Monkeyland-KZN website.
IMPORTANT NOTICE - MARCH 2020:
DUE TO THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC, WE REGRET TO ANNOUNCE THAT, FOR THE SAFETY OF OUR ANIMALS, STAFF AND VOLUNTEERS, ALL OF OUR VOLUNTEER PROGRAMMES ARE SUSPENDED WITH EFFECT FROM 25TH MARCH 2020. WE WILL OPEN OUR PROGRAMMES AGAIN WHEN WE CAN.
Volunteer at one of the South African Animal Sanctuary Alliance's three sanctuaries in Plettenberg Bay - Monkeyland Primate Sanctuary, Birds of Eden or Jukani Wildlife Sanctuary - or our newest sanctuary, Monkeyland-KZN in KwaZulu-Natal.
Volunteers will be considered if they can understand and speak English, are hard-working, fast-learning, enthusiastic and prepared to cheerfully fulfil tasks such as welcoming tourists at our entrance gate, informing visitors about our animals as they assist them to the reception, explain the basic rules regarding our sanctuaries (no touching, etc), assisting with caring for the primates, birds, and other wildlife.
Media Volunteers in Plettenberg Bay are based at Monkeyland but may work across all three sanctuaries. More information about our media volunteer programme is contained in the 'A Day at SAASA Plettenberg Bay - Media Volunteers' document below.
If you feel that volunteering with us is not 100% the right move for you but you still wish to assist us in some way please feel free to donate money, services and/or goods to assist SAASA. You could do so by contacting us.
