Our back round is wildlife parks and we have been in the industry since 1952 Bredls Wild Farm is a new concept of ours and totally unique. we require volunteers just to help with day to day activities. Here is examlpe put together by a volunteer of day to day job sheet.

Welcome to the Bredlís Wild farm :)

This document is created by volunteers for volunteers. It helps to understand what needs to be done (and helps to remind you, like a check-list).
If you donít understand a task or if you donít feel good about anything, please ask Cherie, Daniel or Zeb. There is never a stupid question!
Donít hesitate to update or write more information on this paper. In nature, nothing is stable, same for this document!
