What We Do

Conservation Volunteers welcomes people with a love of the outdoors and an interest in the environment to take part as a volunteer in one of our many conservation projects.  Our 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.

Conservation Volunteers 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. All of our volunteer projects can be broadly categorised into the following key focus areas and we welcome your involvement.

Wild Futures

Wild Futures is Conservation Volunteers' national wildlife conservation program, focusing on 12 endangered Australian species.  It makes a measurable difference to the future of some of our most treasured animals.  You can support this program financially or by volunteering a Wild Futures project.

Heritage projects include, but are not limited to natural, built and cultural locations of significance which must be preserved for current and future generations.

Disaster Recovery

Natural disasters like fires, droughts, floods and violent storms occur all too frequently. Man-made disasters such as oil-spills can also cause significant damage to our natural environment.  We run projects in times of need all in the name of disaster recovery.
