Conservation Volunteers has partnered with individuals, businesses and governments in the conservation of our unique environment since 1982. In that time we have welcomed hundreds of thousands of volunteers from around Australia and across the world and supported their participation in a diversity of important projects to protect and enhance our environment.
During the last two weeks of September Conservation Volunteers will be hosting beach clean ups at Beechford and Weymouth on Tasmainia's north coast. During the clean ups data will also be collected to be submitted into the National Marine Debris Database, creating an important link in the understanding of the state of Australia's oceans and coastline with regards to marine debris.
Conservation Volunteers has grown from humble beginnings in regional Victoria to become a national organisation with a permanent presence in 30 locations around Australia and New Zealand and a project presence in many countries around the world.
Conservation Volunteers has built a network of people and organisations all of whom value our unique environment and recognise the increasingly important role that we all must play in responding to the challenges of species and habitat loss, environmental degradation, environmental skills shortages and the impact of a changing climate.
At Conservation Volunteers we recognise that if we are to succeed in achieving real environmental improvements we must continue to evolve as an organisation - we will continue to provide opportunities for all Australians – encouraging volunteering, improving life skills and opportunities, connecting communities, enabling people to become more active in their local communities and providing ways for people to connect with the environment.
