Native Forest Volunteer Project, New Zealand
Become a conservation volunteer in New Zealand and work to preserve the native forest on the Kauri Coast. This is a unique chance to work in an unexplored forest, with volunteers being the first people in more than a generation to discover the plants and trees growing in the forest.
Working in groups of up to six volunteers you will be carrying out a variety of conservation tasks. The work is focused on the completion of a grid network of trails. These trails are used to monitor and control the pests which harm the kiwis and other native birds in the forest.
As a volunteer you will be involved with:
- Establishing the grid pattern of trails
- Clearing & widening trails
- Bait station installation & monitoring
- GPS trail mapping
- Night Safaris
- Wilderness Skills
- Possibility to spend a few nights in the forest
Volunteers can join for 2 - 12 weeks between January & March each year. The cost for the 2 week programme is £565, 4 weeks is £875, 6 weeks is £1185, 8 weeks is £1495, and 10 weeks is £1795.
