OPPORTUNITIES TO GET INVOLVED
By joining Conservation Volunteers Australia, you've already shown your great support for conservation. For those who wish, there are plenty of opportunities across Australia (and overseas) for more hands-on involvement. Join a volunteer project on a weekend, take part on a residential project, enjoy a social activity or join one of our Friends of Conservation Volunteers groups. Whatever you choose, you’ll enjoy fun and friendship with the chance to learn all about protecting the environment. Our professional Team Leaders will provide the training you need to complete conservation projects safely and effectively.
Our members receive the Conservation Volunteers News, full of informative stories and eco-tips, delivered three times per year, plus a monthly e-News, and a car sticker. Members also receive our beautiful full-colour Conservation Calendar annually, or a supporter’s wristband for Young Members (aged 23 and under).
Members also enjoy the opportunity to buy discounted gifts and conservation merchandise from our Eco Shop, and can join our regular conservation training programs and social activities.
