Conservation volunteers are motivated by a lot of things; they want to preserve the environment but they also want to engage in nature and meet people. Often they are travellers, students or retirees.
All Conservation Volunteers projects involve practical conservation, and volunteers operate in teams of up to 10, under guidance and instruction of a professional CV Team Leader.
One project currently calling for volunteers on Kangaroo Island aims at removing weeds that are endangering the unique wildlife. This is a great way to emerge yourself in parts of the island rarely experienced by tourist.
If you want to get more into saving some of our warm blooded wildlife, of the hopping variety, there are some projects to help the survival of the Yellow Footed Rock Wallaby in the Flinders Ranges. You'll camp at spectacular gorges under star filled skies at night and work during the day on data gathering and observation, essential to the survival of the adorable endangered wallaby.
While some projects have a cost covering fee, there are other opportunities for free. It's as easy as going to the website, selecting a program and signing up. Visit the Conservation Volunteers websitehere.
