Regular Aviary Cleaner Wanted

We are looking for a volunteer to come in one day a week on a regular basis to clean the aviaries. You must be prepared to get wet and mucky and work in all weathers. Wellingtons and water-proofs are essential. We will provide a hard hat and gloves for use when cleaning the aviaries.

The job entails picking up feathers, pellets and discarded food (not for the faint hearted), scrubbing perches and pressure washing the mesh and floors of the aviaries, with due care and attention to the welfare of the birds, and reporting any concerns about birds or aviaries to the Conservation Team.

This is a responsible and essential position and we are looking for a long term commitment.The role may also extend on occasions to owl care, such as annual health checks and treatment of injured or disabled owls.

Please email info@barnowltrust.org.uk for an application form.
