Conservation Volunteers in Australia and New Zealand

Volunteer in an extraordinary range of locations across Australia and New Zealand and work on a range of conservation projects to protect, preserve and restore their natural environments. 

We have 10 locations across Australia and 3 in New Zealand often in places where tourists don't normally get to visit. Volunteers can choose a starting location and will normally travel to a new project every week. Working in teams of up to ten you will get a chance to get involved with:

  • Tree planting
  • Seed Collection
  • Walking Trail Construction
  • Heritage Restoration

As a volunteer you will receive the opportunity to learn about the conservation issues faced by Australia and New Zealand as well as learning practical conservation skills. This is also a chance to make a volunteer contribution and earn references. 

This is a great opportunity for those who love the outdoors and who have an interest in the environment to take part as a practical volunteer.
