Eco/Conservation Volunteers

Environment & Conservation Long Term Margaret River, WA

About this opportunity

On June 1 2017 the Cape to Cape Catchments Group changed its name to Nature Conservation Margaret River Region or Nature Conservation for short.

Nature Conservation provides a range of rewarding volunteering activities to allow community members and visitors to the region to give something back to the environment. Our volunteering activities include field activities such are tree planting and other foreshore and bushland restoration activities, conservation action to protect threatened fauna species and coastcare activities such as beach clean ups and dune restoration work.

Citizen science programs are also available which allow interested community members assist us to collect data on local flora and fauna. Examples of these programs include the annual Possum Tally and the Great Cocky Count. These program increase our environmental understanding of our region and allow us to better design conservation programs.

If you are not interested in outdoor environmental volunteering we also have occasional requirements for suitably skilled volunteers to assist in our offices or to help out at events.
