Russell and May at Bush Haven urgently need to arrange new house-sitters/ sanctuary minders for a weekend in February and extended [six weeks] time from 11 May to 22nd June 2013.
Obviously we would like someone who genuinely cares for birds and could prepare food in mornings for both parrots and birds in care, mainly kereru; also for some kereru that come regularly for food but are now flying free. Full training will be given for this and all outside aviaries are set up with a watering system, so no carrying heavy buckets etc. Parrots would have full seed hoppers and only occasional green food etc done as non-breeding season.
Some experience in dealing with minor avian injuries would be really pleasing but even just a genuine interest would be a help to us providing you could visit regularly for some training prior to house-sitting.
We also have two cats and a dog to feed morning and night. You would live rent-free with power all paid by direct debit. Heat pumps, automatic washing machine, dvd player, broadband and landline; newspaper delivery also paid; sorry no Sky but Freeview TV, .
If you are genuinely interested please contact us at 03.2130530 or firstname.lastname@example.org in the first instance. References may be required.
