Reports to: Wildlife Rehabilitation Manager
Organization: Toronto Wildlife Centre
Location: Currently based at Downsview Park, with plans to relocate to the Rouge National Urban Park during 2020
Start Date: Early spring 2020
Commitment: 6 month contract

The wildlife kitchen at Toronto Wildlife Centre (TWC) has been providing nutritious, species-specific food for thousands of wild patients annually, representing over 270 wild species. A healthy diet is a critical aspect of rehabilitation for wildlife. The logistics of delivering hundreds of fresh meals each day to hungry patients is challenging so TWC is looking for an experienced team to take the lead!
Trained and supervised by the Wildlife Nutrition Coordinator, seasonal kitchen staff will provide additional support during TWC’s busiest time of year from April to October—when we care for up to 700 patients at a time with a huge range of diets and case-specific dietary needs. The support staff will assist with meal preparation, feeder colony care, organization of supplies, and other tasks as needed.
