For the month of September, we are celebrating Biodiversity Month and National Threatened Species Day (7th September). Australia wide, we are calling on you and your business to GO WILD for Wild Futures by supporting Conservation Volunteers Australia’s national threatened species program, Wild Futures.
The Wild Futures program contributes to wildlife conservation in a simple yet powerful way. We have chosen to work with a handful of threatened species to which we can provide real help. When volunteers join our recovery teams and roll up their sleeves to plant a tree, tag a turtle or repair a predator-proof fence, we know that we are making a real difference to the future of our chosen wildlife.
Join Conservation Volunteers Australia and Go Wild for Wild Futures
1. Adopt a Wild Futures Species
You can support Wild Futures, by adopting a Wild Futures species for your organisation, providing opportunities for your employees to get involved later in the year.
2. Go Wild and volunteer
Book in a team now to volunteer and support Wild Futures. Go Wild, get outdoors and connect with your local threatened species through hands on actions during September. This year the key species we are supporting throughout Biodiversity Month are the Koala (QLD & NSW), the Eastern Barred Bandicoot (VIC) and the Carnaby’s Black Cockatoo (WA). You can join at many locations across Australia, including:
- Woodlands Historic Park, Melbourne
- Daisy Hill Conservation Park, Brisbane
- Tahmoor, Wollongong; and
- Manning Lake Reserve, Perth
The cost is $2,000 per team of up to 10 volunteers. We can provide a tailored day for each of the following Wild Futures sites.
3. Join our photo competition
Can’t get out and volunteer with Conservation Volunteers Australia this month? You can still support Wild Futures, by joining our photo competition.
