Seal Sanctuary Volunteering - Daily Timetable

Posted on July 16, 2012 at 11:10 AM

Saturday 2nd June

I thought it might be of interest to see my usual day at Gweek, set out clearly and easy to read without loads of rambling about each job or the animals. So here was my day on the 2nd June when I was kept on as a weekend volunteer until I moved home when college finished. The timetable was pretty much the same each day, just a different pool being cleaned and sometimes water testing or extra medication given.

8:00am – Paddocks. Field’s switch over, feed, clean and water.

8:45am – Fish prep. Pill fish, weighing, defrosting.
