Become a conservation volunteer in locations across Australia and New Zealand.  Volunteers will have the opportunity to carry out tree planting, trail construction, wildlife surveying, invasive species control and a range of other environmental volunteer projects. Volunteer as part of a team and meet new people from across Australia and the world.

Volunteers can choose to start from a range of different locations (16 locations around Australia and 3 in New Zealand) and normally travel to a different project location every week.

Volunteers work in teams of up to 10 on projects in urban, regional and remote locations. Team Leaders provide training on-site. Typical Activities include:

• Opportunities to visit places tourists don’t normally see, including remote areas
• Certificate of Appreciation on completing the programme

This project is a great opportunity for people with a love of the outdoors and an interest in the environment to take part as a volunteer on pratical conservation projects.  Volunteers come from a wide range of backgrounds and no prior skills or experience are required, and volunteer projects are available to suit your availability and particular interests.

These conservation volunteering projects are managed in conjunction with project partners that may include regional councils, national parks, museums, landcare groups, conservation departments and other national conservation agencies in Australia & New Zealand.

You can volunteer in Australia or New Zealand for between 1 week and 12 weeks in duration, and we have places available throughout 2015.
