Conservation Volunteers Australia activates communities to get nature back in balance.

Since 1982, we have delivered environmental and social outcomes across Australia through practical conservation activities with volunteers in urban and regional areas. We are Australia’s community engagement experts.

As we enter a new era for conservation, we are renewing our focus on five key Campaigns to better tackle community and conservation challenges across Australia. Through these Campaigns, we develop collaborative partnerships which bring together the expert knowledge, land, people and resources to create better futures for the species in need and communities around them, over multiple years.

We are now recruiting for people with skills and experiences to carry us forward in this new chapter. We are offering you the opportunity to work in a role where you will find purpose, exercise your autonomy and engage in collaboration internally and externally to bring projects to life and make a positive difference for communities and ecosystems around the country.
