E-mail Stampa PDF
Se avete a cuore gli animali, vi piacciono le specie esotiche ed uno dei vostri desideri é poter operare in un centro che si occupa di animal care, allora abbiamo un bel progetto di volontariato internazionale che fa per voi.

Per conto di una fondazione nederlandese stiamo cercando un volontario interessato a partecipare ad un progetto del Servizio Volontario Europeoche - se approvato - partirebbe ad inizio giugno 2015.

Le attivitá, della durata di 1 anno, si svolgeranno ad Almere, nei Paesi Bassi, dove ha sede l'Organizzazione Ospitante, importante centro di recupero, salvaguardia e riabilitazione di animali esotici.

Si cercano candidati che abbiano a cuore il tema della salvaguardia e del recupero degli animali e che possibilmente abbiano esperienza nell'ambito dell'animal care.L'interesse verso le specie esotiche sará considerata un plus. Il volontario ideale, inoltre, deve essere fortemente motivato, non temere il duro lavoro fisico e avere una buona conoscenza dell'inglese.

I partecipanti saranno in tutto due, possibilmente ognuno da un Paese diverso. I volontari selezionari opereranno soprattutto a contatto con l'Addetto alle Comunicazioni della fondazione, ma aiuteranno lo staff locale anche nel lavoro quotidiano, quindi il contatto con gli animali esotici ospiti del centro sará costante.

DettagliCome sempre per lo SVE (18 - 30 anni) targato Erasmus+, il viaggio A/R é almeno in parte coperto (leggere pag. 78 della Guida a Erasmus+), mentre vitto e alloggio sono pagati in toto, cosí come l'assicurazione ed un corso base della lingua locale.Previsto anche un pocket money mensile (leggere pag. 83 della Guida a Erasmus+ di cui sopra).Pocket money per questo progetto nei Paesi Bassi: 115 euro al mese.

Project code / EVS accreditation n.: 2013-NL-20Hosting Organisation: Stichting AAP - Rescue Centre for Exotic AnimalsSending Organisation: Associazione ScambieuropeiProject dates: 01/06/2015 - 31/05/2016 Location: Almere (The Netherlands)Themes: Environment and climate change, Animal welfareHO description: http://europa.eu/youth/vp/organisation/54000511285_en

HOST ORGANISATIONAAP is a European rescue center for exotic animals. The animals that end up with AAP often come from illegal trade, research laboratories, circuses, illegal zoos or directly from private individuals. The foundation specializes in the rescue and rehabilitation of apes and monkeys. Other small exotic mammals are also sheltered by AAP, including raccoons, skunks and prairie dogs. Prior to their arrival at AAP they often have been seriously abused and severely neglected. At AAP the animals receive the professional care needed for their recovery. AAP’s aim is to make the animals mentally and physically healthy and to place them in a more natural environment, such as a natural enclosure or in a renowned zoo or a nature reserve in which the animals are still being looked after.

VOLUNTEER'S ROLETwo EVS-volunteers will join the teams of caretakers, respectively our communication officer, for the period of 12 months enabling them to learn about the working field of animal rescue and rehabilitation center thoroughly. In this project the animal care volunteers will assist in the daily care and rehabilitation of the animals at different departments, they will help in the maintenance of the premises and assist in activities organized by AAP. The volunteer involved in communication will also help out with broad spectrum of communication and educational activities. The EVS-period will provide all of them not only with insight and valuable work and life experience but will also help them establish contact with many other young Europeans committed to animal welfare.

SOCIAL AND WORK ENVIRONMENTAs an EVS volunteer at AAP you will be part of a large group of volunteers who work within AAP. The volunteer will be in close contact with employed staff, other volunteers and many interns. AAP is located on a recreational area in Almere, “De Kemphaan”. It is an attractive area with different organizations working with nature. There is a biological farm, a place where youngsters learn about nature, where children with fewer opportunities can have a free vacation and of course there is AAP. “De Kemphaan” is located 8 km from the city center.

AAP has two guest houses, one on its own premises and one in the residential areas of the city. Here you will live together not only with other EVS volunteers but also with other volunteers who work at AAP but who are not associated with EVS. Tasks to be performed with regard to the volunteer house are also part of the EVS experience. You will act as a contact between the inhabitants and AAP, which will give you the opportunity to improve your managerial and social skills. In general, staying in the AAP-volunteer house gives you an opportunity to participate in social activities and learn more about the Dutch culture. On occasions AAP also organizes meetings for all volunteers and friends of the organization. The staff of Animal Care Departments takes care of thorough training and guidance in the voluntary work of all new volunteers.

ACTIVITIESAs a volunteer you will be working in an active and flexible organization.Despite the fixed project description, there are many opportunities for personal growth when volunteering at AAP. Within the EVS year, you will experience all four animal care departments of AAP, i.e. quarantine and three rehabilitation departments for small mammals, primates and chimpanzees respectively. At all departments you will actively take part in the caretaking process of different kinds of exotic animal species. Experienced animal caretakers provide you with thorough training and guidance.The volunteers will have the opportunity to experience multiple aspects of animal care within the organization. There will be fixed patterns and tasks you have to perform but after some time there will be opportunities to change tasks, depending on your abilities, interest and especially attitude.

VOLUNTEERS' TASKSThis is what a volunteer should expect during the project:• Works 4 days a week in a team of experienced animal caretakers and will be trained to carry out daily activities independently.• Is responsible for cleaning the animals’ enclosures.• Assists in furnishing the animals’ enclosures, e.g. replacing floor covering of enclosures and erecting beams and other structures.• Makes enrichment items for the animals to stimulate natural behavior and keeps an eye on their overall behavior.• Helps prepare food and feeds the animals.• Takes care of small maintenance.• Reports peculiarities to the experienced caretakers and takes part in writing daily reports on the animals’ health and care.

At AAP the main focus is on the animals’ welfare so the majority of your activities will be directly linked to this. The team leaders of the different departments will decide on what kind of responsibilities you will be assigned; this depends on the progress you are making and the confidence, reliability and understanding you show to the caretakers and team leaders. This means that activities of several EVS-ers might differ. How your individual responsibilities and tasks evolve during your EVS project is largely dependent on you. Also, all EVS-ers at AAP are involved in proper management of the AAP guest houses (for details see section ‘Social and Working Environment’), which will train you in social and managerial skills.
