This is a great volunteer chance for all who are interested in the outdoors and conservation initiatives. Volunteers have a whole variety of backgrounds and are from across the globe.

Volunteers will be able to:

- Learn about conservation obstacles in Australia and New Zealand
- Hone hands-on conservation abilities since training is provided in each project
- Make a difference as a volunteer while earning references and certificates
- Live as a team with up to 10 volunteers from across the globe
- Have the chance to see areas that tourists don’t normally visit, including remote areas
- Certificate of Appreciation on completing the programme


You should be aged 18 or over, in good health and reasonably fit, and prepared to take part to the best of your ability.
All prospective volunteers should declare any medical conditions, allergies, disabilities or existing injuries that may affect participation - our staff will discuss these with volunteers in a sensitive and confidential manner.
You should be aware that volunteer projects are usually labour-intensive, and take place in both urban and rural areas.
Be prepared to participate in all weather conditions. You'll need to bring appropriate clothing for the weather.
You will be shown how to use all tools and equipment safely before you start the project and there will always be a Team Leader with first aid training on the project with you.
Any essential safety equipment will be provided, and you will be shown how to use it.
