Volunteer for conservation

Volunteer for conservation this National Volunteer Week and become part of an active community.

If you only have 15 minutes to spare, you can plant a native tree, pull out pesky weeds or pick up rubbish on the beach.

With more time, you could try out as a hut warden, become a shorebird minder or participate in a bird survey. Volunteering offers the chance to go somewhere different and meet new people.
