In the face of the devastating bushfires in Tasmania, Conservation Volunteers is working hard to mobilise our teams of volunteers to provide assistance both now and well into the future to bushfire-devastated farmers, communities and environment managers.
There is a massive need to support the longer term recovery of the natural environment. In turn, Conservation Volunteers is providing teams of volunteers that will move across the region helping fire impacted communities to tackle the massive task of reinstating essential fences and infrastructure, re-establishing native vegetation, controlling new & emerging high risk environmental weeds, and provision of lost habitat for native wildlife.
Based on our experience assisting bushfire recovery programs after the Black Saturday Bushfires in Victoria in 2009, we are identifying and assisting projects via the appropriate Natural Resource Management Bodies including NRM South, the Farmers and Graziers Association and the Tasmania Parks and Wildlife Services who are progressively assessing the damage and determining immediate and long-term needs.
Disaster Recovery - what we do
Natural disasters like fires, droughts, floods and violent storms occur all too frequently.
Man-made disasters such as oil-spills can cause significant damage to our natural environment too. Conservation Volunteers has a long history of assisting in both the response and recovery phase of numerous disasters ranging from devastating bushfires and cyclones to oil spills and whale-strandings.
Our volunteers support communities and the environment as they respond to and recover from disasters. Past activities have included cleaning and feeding oil-affected birds; reinstating fences after major bushfires; and restoring walking tracks after floods.
