Join us and become a Nature Ambassador!

To volunteer with Conservation Volunteers Australia (CVA) as a Nature Ambassador all you need is a desire to take action for nature and to join forces with other like-minded people. Because together, we can make a greater impact.

As a member of the CVA’s inner circle of volunteers, Nature Ambassadors support the delivery of a range of CVA events, and work with their communities on innovative, co-developed activities wherever they are, reaching out through their networks to prompt nature stewardship in others. Nature Ambassadors play an active role at local volunteering events in ‘people facing’ roles, or behind the scenes helping to make things happen. Not only do Nature Ambassadors make a significant contribution to the community and environment, but they can also attain recognition from CVA for volunteering, professional learning and leadership skills.

CVA nurtures and supports Nature Ambassadors interested in establishing environmental community projects too. We can work with you to help grow the impact of your projects and engage the community utilising CVA’s expertise and resources.

Get involved with Nature Ambassadors

There are currently opportunities for you to join CVA as a Nature Ambassador through our #SeaToSource project, located in Brisbane, Sydney (Paramatta River and Georges River), Melbourne, Hobart, Adelaide, and Perth.

#SeaToSource supports people around the country to take action on one of the world’s most solvable environmental issues – ocean litter.  It focuses on the source from where ocean litter starts its journey, encouraging us all to find ways to eventually make beach clean-ups a thing of the past.

We are inviting proactive volunteers who want to engage more deeply with #SeaToSource to become one of our inaugural Nature Ambassadors. Starting with a small core group of like-minded people, you will join us to help forge a new purposeful way of environmental volunteering, making a positive and lasting impact in your community. By participating in and supporting this journey, your achievements and skills as a Nature Ambassador will be celebrated and recognised.
