Over het programma

Do you have a group of passionate volunteers ready to experience both the land and marine aspects of the Tropical North Queensland? This environmental education tour is perfect for families and groups of 4-10 participants who want to learn about the Great Barrier Reef, Daintree, Cape Tribulation and Atherton Tablelands. This program starts the first or second week of each month.

A great opportunity to teach your family about the environment and immerse yourself in tropical north Queensland.

Day 0 – Check into your hotel and try to control your excitement for the next 5 day adventure ahead. Please note: Accommodation IS NOT included in this pricing - please email us for accommodation suggestions or look at the many options in Cairns)

Day 1 – On the first day you’ll find yourself in the ancient Daintree rainforest and Cape Tribulation. Cruise the scenic coastline by 4WD, spot crocodiles on a river cruise, journey through the National Park where you can recharge and refresh with traditional Australian ‘Billy Tea’, damper bread and natural fruity icecream. Don’t forget to stop and take in where the lush rainforest meets the reef. Enjoy swims, beach walks and listening to the natural chorus of the wildlife whilst learning about the complex and ancient rainforest.

Day 2 – You'll embark a 35 metre catamaran for a snorkel on the largest living reef system in the world, the iconic Great Barrier Reef. With your very own marine biologist on board, expect to learn about the inquisitive marine species that live on the reef and colourful corals and how this biodiverse ecosystem interacts and functions. Enjoy a BBQ lunch with a wine and cheese platter to help take it all in.

Day 3 – Swap bathers for walking shoes and venture into the Australian Outback. On this adventure trail you can experience the indigenous culture of Australia and their traditional way of living for centuries in the rugged Australian terrain. Learn about Australian wildlife, go on a unique guided cave tour, visit the ‘Balancing Rock’ - a geological spectacle, lay eyes upon ancient Aboriginal rock art and visit the ruins of the Chilliagoe Smelter.

Day 4 - Another day out at sea, you’ll take a ferry to a tropical island and meet our volunteer research team to help study and protect the Great Barrier Reef. You will learn about the threats to the Barrier Reef and what steps marine conservationists are taking to monitor and respond to risk indicators. By the end of the day, you will know all about coral and be able to identify some of the key marine species. 

Day 5 – Rejoin the research team at a new island location where you will learn about Indigenous Australian culture. Learn about some of the threats that sea turtles face in the wild and join the team on their snorkelling surveys to document the wild and free turtles. We will introduce you to some of the local turtles and teach you how to identify one turtle from another. You will come away from today with knowledge of Indigenous Australian culture and ceremony plus have a great understanding of marine turtles and the threats to their survival. Go on a self-guided eco-walk to the Nudeys beach or take the summit track to see a 360 degree view on the Island.

Over de organisatie

Oceans 2 Earth Volunteers is a non-profit organisation that was founded for the purpose of providing resources and financial assistance to animal welfare and conservation

Ontmoet je organisatie

The O2E Founders are animal lovers and committed volunteers. They founded and established the organisation in Melbourne, Australia, having seen firsthand that volunteer recruitment agencies were not always aware if the projects they supported had the best interests of animals and environment in mind. Instead, unethical and harmful behaviour including elephant riding, unsustainable tree nursery projects and the consumption of scarce community resources by the presence of volunteers were often the result. Local wildlife communities and the animals’ environments were also clearly disadvantaged. For this reason, we created our Oceans 2 Earth Ethical Standards and the Wildlife Code and measure all potential projects by these policies prior to partnering with them.

Oceans 2 Earth Volunteers offers volunteering and adventure travel experiences for ethically minded animal and conservation lovers looking for the trip of a lifetime.

In creating Oceans 2 Earth Volunteers, the O2E founders challenge and engage individuals to contribute to meaningful animal welfare and conservation projects. As wildlife carers and avid animal welfare and rights campaigners, they uphold a vision to promote ethical volunteering as an advisable travel alternative.

We believe the way to solve the issues of animal mistreatment and environmental destruction and degradation is to provide people with the opportunity to contribute and interact so that they may develop their own personal culture of responsibility and global conservation. People exposed first hand to challenging bio diverse environmental issues are more likely to draw on those experiences and continue to make a positive impact once they arrive home. 

Oceans 2 Earth recognise that individuals really can make a difference. However small the work effort is from one person, if you combine the actions of many people as a whole, the result can become quite significant. By bringing like-minded and ethically conscious animal lovers together, Oceans 2 Earth believe that there is no limit to what we can achieve. 

Our Mission

Promote environmental sustainability and to be accountable for our impact on the environment.

Take action and find solutions to improve the natural, bio-diverse way of life for all. Promote the ethical treatment and natural living ecology of all animals.

Expose and educate volunteers to the plight of animals ill-affected by conflict or interaction with man, encouraging them to take action and find solutions to these global issues.
