Thanks to volunteers just like you, we are closer to achieving our vision of Tasmania becoming a global leader in nature conservation and sustainability.

Our community of committed volunteers are vital to the success of our conservation work. Our volunteers contribute valuable effort, skills and expertise across all areas of the organisation including science projects, ecological monitoring, reserve management activities, governance, event support, mail outs, photography and much more.

Involving volunteers in our conservation work also greatly reduces our costs. For example, during 2016-2017, 321 individual volunteers contributed 929.59 days of work which is equivalent to $261,847.97 worth of paid work. We are enormously grateful for this contribution.
