The program

This amazing, collaborative conservation program is a long term project with various government, business, community and universities groups working with volunteers to pool resources and deliver significant environmental and community benefits in the Christchurch region.  Working in diverse locations from inner-city parks and waterways to scenic hilltops overlooking the Pacific ocean and coastal reserves, volunteers will work on restoring biodiversity in the area, support species protection, help to strengthen community networks and provide enhanced conservation land for the benefit of future generations. From working with the most threatened species, to assisting in environmental restoration, volunteers make a huge difference on this program.

Goals of this Project:

  • Protect New Zealand's beautiful parks, reserves and natural heritage
  • Protect many species of wildlife from extinction
  • Enhance and protect wetland ecology
  • Restore and open more parks and reserves tot he public for them to appreciate and learn about their significance
  • Enable inter-cultural exchange between all parties and teach international visitors about environmental practices and New Zealand
How you can help

Volunteers play an integral role in achieving the goal of this program - to maintain and restore the diverse native flora and fauna ecosystem.  Volunteers work to conserve, restore, rehabilitate and manage land using conservation tools and people power to improve conservation land and to provide access for people to enjoy and appreciate nature. Like many conservation programs, a willing volunteer labor force is essential to the success of the program. Volunteers will assist program staff with tasks that are essential to conservation projects such as planting, weeding, removing invasive pest plants, seed collection, plant propagation at the on-site nursery (where all native plants for the project are grown) and creating walking tracks. Working in a group of between 4 - 10 local and international volunteers, teams work under the instruction of an experienced supervisor and alongside local communities, environmental groups, universities and conservation experts on well-planned and managed, safe, valid and essential projects. Full training is given by project team leaders. Volunteers gain a wonderful opportunity to learn about conservation issues and learn practical conservation skills and can earn references and certificates.

Volunteers will contribute in a number of ways and on any number of environmental or wildlife projects and can expect to undertake the following tasks:

  • Plant propagation
  • Tree planting
  • Walking trail construction
  • Wildlife surveys
  • Seed collection
  • Weed control
  • Heritage restoration
