If you want to raise awareness about koala care and conservation, becoming a Port Macquarie Koala Hospital volunteer tour guide could be for you.
The koala hospital is calling for more volunteers to conduct guided tours.
The tours introduce visitors to the permanent care koalas and provide interesting information.
Port Macquarie Koala Hospital education coordinator Jennifer Baker said the volunteer tour guides spread the word about koala care and conservation.
“It is just being involved and part of the koala hospital experience and knowing you are doing something to help and educate people on the need to save koala habitat and what they should look out for if they see a wild koala,” Mrs Baker said.
Visitors turn up from all over the world for the 3pm daily tour.
Each tour takes a maximum of 35 minutes.
People interested in becoming a tour guide are invited to a workshop on April 10 presented by John Pastorelli from Rich Customer Experiences.
The workshop begins at 10am and potential new tour guides should call the koala hospital on 6584 1522 to secure a place.
The workshop is part of Mr Pastorelli’s day-long visit to the koala hospital during which he will work with the tour guides.
Koala hospital clinical director Cheyne Flanagan said the amount of visitors to the koala hospital was dramatically increasing.
She said Mr Pastorelli would help the guides to better present the information to get the message out.
