Program details

The conservation experience is a full-time program. We organise your conservation activities, training, transfer to and from the projects locations, food and accommodation all along your program. You will start after the end of your English course and be grouped with other members every week, working on various projects in differing project locations every week.

You need to choose:

  • Your start date
  • Your program length (in weeks)
  • Your starting point (25 in Australia including Sydney, Newcastle and Wollongong in NSW)

Based on this and the conservation priorities, our team will draw up a program for you, ensuring that you are assigned to a range of projects and activities along your program.

Conservation Activities may include:

  • Tree planting
  • Walking trail construction
  • Wildlife surveys
  • Seed collection
  • Protection and restoration of native plant habitats
  • Conservation fencing
  • Heritage restoration
