Northern Territory offers volunteers the chance of projects in the Top End (Darwin). Darwin was founded as Australia’s most northerly harbour port in 1869, and is the tropical capital city of the Northern Territory. With national parks, beaches and World Heritage areas within reach, projects take place in and around Darwin as well as in remote locations.
Start from CVA’s office in Darwin.
Examples of projects in the Northern Territory include
- Nhulunbuy, East Arnhem Land is the scene of this once in a lifetime Crazy Ant project (Australian Traveller magazine: `100 Great Things to Do in Australia You’ve Never Heard Of` #92). Volunteers help scientists and indigenous rangers to bait and monitor this introduced invasive ant species.
- Talc Head – our marine debris surveys take place in a remote tropical paradise – volunteers help to survey and remove debris from beautiful beaches. This directly helps to protect local sea turtle nesting areas. Teams also assist with track clearing to the historic headland in which Stokes first surveyed Darwin.
