Help restore the region's ecology back to its natural, native state, maintain walking paths, or participate in flora and fauna surveys.
Although most of Australia is semi-arid or desert, it boasts a wide range of diverse habitats from alpine heaths to tropical rainforests, and is recognized as mega-diverse. Many of Australia's eco-regions, and the species within them, are threatened by human activities. Numerous protected areas have been created to preserve these unique ecosystems. This project offers a fun and friendly opportunity to contribute, in a practical way, to the conservation of the unique Australian environment and thus, to help and protect the ecosystem for the long run. The following are examples of typical projects volunteers experience during their placements:

Working hours and days:
Volunteers generally spend one or two weeks at each project site. Project hours are generally from 8am to 4pm. Projects take place in both urban and rural areas. Be prepared for the weather - different parts of Australia can be very hot or cold, so you'll need appropriate clothing (and sleeping bag) for the climate in the area you've chosen to visit.
Australia has lots of activities to offer depending on where your project takes you. Kick back on a beach in Western Australia and do some snorkeling or water skiing, lose yourself in Melbourne, visit hundred-year-old giant trees while hikingh in the forests of Tasmania or visit the Sydney Opera House.
