Volunteering

We appreciate how much our volunteers help our environment! 

Our native plants and animals and our agricultural industries all benefit greatly from the understanding, advocacy and conservation efforts of volunteers. Volunteers also get many benefits including enjoying nature, healthy activity and feeling good about contributing to the environment.

There are many ways to get involved with looking after our environment; from joining a community group or not-for-profit organisation, participating at one-off events or helping out at a community-run natural resource centre. If you would like to volunteer, please complete our volunteer expression of interest form. We are committed to helping our volunteers - read more in our Volunteer Statement of Commitment.
