Join NSW National Parks in this volunteer work and you’ll meet new people and work alongside like-minded individuals. You’ll also play an active role in encouraging the growth of Australian plants and protecting the habitat of Australian animals.
Australian animals native to the area include:
- Powerful owl
- Swamp wallaby
- Glossy black cockatoo
Tools and training are both provided for this volunteer work. NSW National Parks and Woy Woy Bay bushcare group look forward to you joining them.
Following this season's unprecedented bushfires, you can register your interest to help the NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) and the Saving our Species program rehabilitate and protect our threatened animals and plants.
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.
