Join up

Friends of the brush-tailed rock-wallaby and NSW National Parks hope to one day see this animal thrive again in the wild within a biodiverse Australian environment, and invite you to help them reach this goal. Being a member of this volunteer group can involve:

  • Participating in fundraising activities
  • Building community awareness, including staffing stalls at local shows and events.
  • Taking part in feral animal and weed control in the Shoalhaven, including assisting with weeding working bees within local colonies.
  • Bringing your specialist skills to the organisation

The group concentrates its activities in the Shoalhaven area, in Morton National Park, Cambewarra Range Nature Reserve and Bugong National Park. If you can't help with these on-ground works you can still help protect this native Australian animal by:

  • Becoming a member
  • Raising awareness
  • Making a donation
  • Purchasing merchandise
  • Adopting a wallaby

Contact the Friends directly for more information on how you can help, and what you need to bring along when you volunteer.

Saving Our Species program

Australia is home to more than 500,000 animal and plant species, many of which are found nowhere else in the world. Saving our Species is a statewide conservation program that addresses the growing number of Australian animals and Australian native plants facing extinction.
