Conservation Volunteers Australia
Whether you love the environment or just want to get out in the fresh air and sunshine, the Conservation Volunteer Australia (CVA) package is a great opportunity to do something different and worthwhile.
You will generally be getting stuck in for 5 days a week between 8am - 4pm, with weekends free to explore, though this may change for some projects. Here are a few of the activities you could be getting up to:
• Environmental monitoring
• Tree planting
• Construction and maintenance of walking tracks
• Erosion and salinity control
• Habitat restoration
• Endangered-species protection
• Seed collection
• Planting of native species
To mix things up a bit and help make sure you experience as much of Australia as possible, you will normally travel to a different project location each week or so. The needs of project vary according to seasonal conditions and conservation priorities so you’ll get placed wherever the most help is needed at the time! Your main role will be to do what’s best for the overall aim; maintaining Australia’s beautiful natural scenery!
