Conservation volunteers make an important contribution to conservation in New Zealand and we'd like to thank all our volunteers from New Zealand and overseas for your help.
Volunteers help with many different conservation tasks such as bird counts, historic building restoration, habitat restoration, hut maintenance, weed control, whale strandings, tree planting, and giving talks. What you do depends partly on your skills.
Please see our website for more information on where you can assist with our volunteer program.
