In the aftermath of the recent bushfires across Australia, Conservation Volunteers has been entrusted as a one of the key organisations to assist in the recovery by coordinating and delivering immediate environmental recovery needs of bushfire affected areas.
In many areas across the country we are still in an emergency phase, whilst other areas are only beginning to assess the losses caused by bushfire and plan for recovery. Volunteering opportunities will be limited in the very short-term - but there are ways that you can help!
Come and join us in Mackay to start building much needed nesting boxes to provide shelter for possums, gliders, microbats and many other native animals. Many natural tree hollows have been lost as result of fire, nest boxes replicate these tree hollows and provide much needed shelter.
All training and materials will be provided. There is no cost to get involved in this event.
We look forward to helping the fire affected areas and providing our wildlife new opportunities and new beginnings!
What you need to bring and wear: Snacks and a water bottle. Please wear appropriate clothing for the activity including sturdy footwear.
Volunteers under the age of 14 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
The level of interest from the community and offers of support has been enormous. Places on this event are limited, so if this event is booked out please keep an eye out for other upcoming opportunities where you can get involved.
