This inspiring project was created with the goal of helping to preserve the ecologically significant environment around Auckland city and its surrounding area. 

The conservation program allows volunteers to take part in vital conservation work to preserve the natural environment and wildlife in some of the most beautiful and threatened parks and reserves across this breathtaking region. From maintaining wetlands and replanting inner-city parks to helping after natural disasters and even whale strandings, volunteers will work across any number of projects and situations with the same objective – to preserve the region’s natural heritage. From volcanic peaks and rugged black sand West Coast beaches to native forests and beautiful East Coast white sandy bays, Auckland has an awe-inspiring natural environment that needs protection. This program plays a vital role in protecting New Zealand’s wildlife and environment in urban, regional and remote locations. From working with the most threatened species, to assisting in environmental restoration, volunteers make a huge difference.

Goals of this Project:

  • Protect New Zealand’s beautiful parks, reserves and natural heritage
  • Protect many species of wildlife from extinction
  • Restore and open more parks and reserves to the public for them to appreciate and learn more about their significance
  • Enable inter-cultural exchange between all parties and teach international visitors more about environmental practices and New Zealand

Start Dates

This project is available year-round and programs start every FRIDAY. Volunteers can choose to participate for periods ranging from 1 week to 12 weeks. Longer stays can be arranged directly with the local team, but will be subject to availability and individual visa conditions.

Spaces on this project are limited and therefore subject to availability. Early booking is recommended.

Requirements

Love Volunteers welcomes all those 18 years and over who wish to give their time and energy to help protect the natural environment of New Zealand. This 'hands-on' project is best suited to those who are either pursuing a career in conservation/environmental studies, or who simply wish to explore an interest in this field. However, the project is open to all and does not require participants to have specific education, qualifications or experience, as you will be shown everything you need to know by your local project leader. Importantly though, all applicants must first and foremost have a genuine willingness to help, show drive and initiative, and bring a positive 'can-do' attitude. If this sounds like you, we want you on the team!
