Conservation Volunteers Australia welcomes everyone who shares our love of nature and commitment to getting nature back in balance.
There are many benefits to getting involved, such as learning new skills, improving health and well-being, and developing a sense of place in your local community – what’s not to love about that?
For World Environment Day 2020 we launched new space to share stories, ideas and work out ways to build strong communities and healthy country, together. We call it The Campfire, and we’d love for you to join us there.
So far we’ve launched projects around our initiatives to tackle Ocean Litter and enable Bushfire Recovery, and we’ve got big plans for a whole lot more in the coming weeks and months.
So come on over, pull up a chair, and tell us what you hope for in the future over at The Campfire.
Effective from 18 March 2020, Conservation Volunteers Australia suspended in-person volunteering activities across the country.
“Our top priority is the well-being of our volunteers, staff, and the wider communities in which we live and operate. We’re implementing this change to enable social distancing, based on the latest advice from health authorities around the country.” – Phil Harrison, CEO, Conservation Volunteers Australia.
Traditionally, we have proudly operated most days of the year, providing opportunities for people to get involved in practical environmental conservation activities in the outdoors, delivering on our purpose to nurture stronger communities and resilient ecosystems. So, what can a conservation organisation do for the environment when we’re not able to engage communities in these activities? Well that’s the challenge we have some ideas about – stay tuned on Facebook and Instagram to hear some of the ideas we have in the pipeline.
As a valued part of our community, we would love to keep you involved in our mission to nurture stronger communities and resilient ecosystems despite these choppy waters, so please help us explore these ‘new covid normal’ waters together. In the meantime, why not take a look at our Projects page to learn more about some of the ways you can stay involved until we can once more get out in the field together.
This is a challenging time for us all, and there’s choppy waters ahead for most environmental organisations who are reliant on donations and partnerships to make positive impact happen for nature.
If you are considering making a financial contribution to our mission, whatever the amount, you can do that on our Donations page. Thank you in advance.
