Conservation Volunteers Australia aspire to be Australia’s conservation engagement experts, providing pathways for people to connect to and to take action for nature.

Now in its 40th year, Conservation Volunteers Australia has engaged millions of people in communities nationwide to lend a hand to nature, making enormous contributions to conservation, enhancing the physical and mental well-being of communities around the country, and promoting practical connections to our unique natural heritage.

Over the next few years, we will be building, nurturing and activating a massive community of people across the country – our ambition is that this community of Nature Stewards will grow to be 1 million people strong.
