Curtin Volunteers Visit the Valley

By Chris R.

This year we were fortunate to be selected to host volunteers from Curtin volunteer groups for two days, as part of John Curtin Weekend.  On Saturday the 16th and the 30th of September, we were joined by a fantastic group of students and their driver who worked at the Sanctuary and assisted us with some labour intensive and time consuming projects.

Projects included laying concrete slabs in animal enclosures to keep animals feet dry in rainy weather, removing spent hay from enclosures, weeding in readiness for the fire season and removing old fencing.

The students were very enthusiastic and interested in learning more about the Valley’s residents.

Following their hard work, the students enjoyed a vegan lunch in the barn followed by a Sanctuary tour where they heard the stories of the animals which their volunteering has assisted.

Thanks Curtin Volunteers – we look forward to seeing you again next year!
