Volunteer

AIWC depends on an army of dedicated and passionate volunteers to assist the staff members with the operation of our organization.

Volunteering is a truly rewarding experience, and even mundane tasks such as floor mopping can be more enjoyable when you know you’re helping wildlife and are surrounded by such magnificent creatures.

Help is needed in various roles and at various times of year. Spring and summer are our “peak” seasons, however, we rely heavily on 140+ active volunteers year round to keep our centre operating.
