Does working outdoors surrounded by chirping birds make you happy? Then our foundation might be the right place for you.


The Sparrow Habitat Foundation is looking for an enthusiastic volunteer to assist our friendly team, especially with bigger jobs in our original, innercity house sparrow habitat. Under the guidance of the cheerful and experienced Jennifer, the habitat has been thoroughly reconstructed and maintained.
Your work will mainly consist of pruning, planting shrubs and trees, removing a dead tree, carry feed bags and put them into boxes and making paths safe by rearanging the stones. In addition, chores such as building a feeder or hanging nest boxes with a ladder. In the habitat, despite the chirping of the sparrows, there is a calm and friendly atmosphere where there is room and safety for everyone.
Even if you have no experience.

Would you like to work in a green environment, do something good for an endangered bird species and at the same time take next steps towards your future? Then sign up via this site.
Respect for animals and nature are required. Kindness is also essential. Handyman/gardening experience is a plus but not a must. The rest can all be learned.
You won’t receive scholastic training, but you will gain work experience as a gardener and handyman.

You are helping an endangered species survive.
You will work with a friendly team.
You will be physically active outdoors.
You will develop yourself in the field of gardening, handyman work and social skills.
You will be useful and gain work experience.
Volunteering gives you a purpose in your life and a good feeling.

House sparrow is an endangered species, not only in the Netherlands but worldwide. This is due to human activity. You will help save an endangered species from extinction. This is not only a good cause but it is also important to get the ecological balance back in the Netherlands so that we can create a green, healthy world and as well as fight the climate crisis.
Once a week on Tuesday afternoon. If that really isn’t possible you can come on any day that suits you. The days may vary when a job needed to be done. Sometimes it is very busy, and then we really need to be able to count on you, then again there are quite days when nothing much needs to be done.
You qualify if you are able-bodied and have respect for animals.
