Must love animals: Interns and volunteers needed at Sudbury wildlife rescue centre
Turtle Pond Wildlife Centre located in the Greater Sudbury community of Val Caron is in need of volunteers and interns.
Since opening in 2016 to rehabilitate turtles, it has since expanded to care for several other animal species and needs helping hands right now to feed and care for them.
"Interns are our stabling force here because they are here for 40 hours a week and our volunteers are wonderful and we need them as well, but the interns provide the stability so that the animals are looked after properly on a daily basis," said Gloria Morissette, the founder of Turtle Pond Wildlife Centre.
Tomas Miro is from Quebec and is a wildlife care intern at the centre where he lives on site.
"I am studying environmental biology, so I just wanted to have some experience with handling animals and whatnot. Hopefully, I can be a zoologist or something in the future, something of the like," Miro said.
Core volunteers who can commit four to eight hours a week are also needed.
The centre is currently fundraising to build a second building for baby mammals and species-specific caging.
Morissette admits the centre has been forced to refuse intakes recently due to a lack of infrastructure and people resources.
