Conservation Volunteers welcomes everyone who shares our love of nature and commitment to conserving the environment. Not only that, there are many benefits to becoming an environmental volunteer 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!

Come join the fun and volunteer on our conservation projects across Australia. Discover your local environment or visit somewhere new and make a difference to our natural habitat by volunteering for single day or multi-day projects.

Bushfire Recovery

On 13 January 2020 Conservation Volunteers Australia was selected to coordinate the national environmental volunteering response to the bushfire crisis by the Australian Federal Government.

We are developing our plan to make the most effective contribution to the recovery efforts regionally and nationally. This will play a significant role in an immediate environment emergency response and a longer-term environmental recovery led by the regions affected. We expect that we will be providing thousands of volunteering opportunities for the significant work needed in the weeks, months and years ahead.

For more information, please see our Bushfire Recovery page.
