Scarborough, February 18th
Join CVA and help us to collect marine debris and microplastics at Redcliffe to record important scientific data for AUSMAP and Tangaroa Blue and prevent harmful materials from being consumed by/entangling our marine life.
Altona, Feb 18th and 25 other dates
By joining us on this project, you'll be working alongside local council and Friends groups to clear noxious weeds in the Altona Coastal Park area. You will also have the opportunity to collect native seeds from the Greenwich Reserve area with a focus on revegetation of mangroves to help prevent further erosion in various areas in Hobsons Bay. These tasks will also help to provide suitable vegetation and habitat for several species of native birds found in the area.
The site location will vary each week in the Altona and Willamstown areas.
Gladstone, Feb 18th and 3 other dates
Join the Gladstone office as we continue our campaign to rid the Gladstone region of the notorious pest…The Cane Toad!
The team will be catching and removing cane toads from a number of fresh water areas around the city.
The poisonous introduced toads pose a serious threat to native wildlife. A female adult Cane Toad can produce up to 35,000 eggs twice a year! Last season we removed over 5,000 toads, so even if just half were feamles we have potentially reduced breeding numbers by 175 million.
This year the Toad Busters team will also be constructing and using new Cane Toad tadpole traps with the help of Gladstone Regional Council and the University of Queensland, come early in the evening and learn how to construct, set and use these traps at your own dam or waterhole
The project is a fantastic opportunity to involve the whole family in an activity that directly benefits the local environment.

South Perth, Feb 18th and 31 other dates
The foreshore areas of the City of South Perth are adjacent to the Swan and Canning Rivers and are important ecological corridors aiding the movement of fauna from inland reserves to and from the river system. South Perth contains the most extensive wetlands in the lower reaches of the Swan and Canning Rivers, with foreshore vegetation that is not found anywhere else along these rivers. The area provides habitat for over 74 species of land and water birds, including 14 significant bird species, 12 reptiles and 6 amphibian species.
Join our volunteers in removing invasive plant species to improve the growth of native vegetation. Volunteers will also be planting new vegetation to stabilise the river banks and prevent erosion. We will be returning to each of these sites over the next three years, allowing our volunteer teams to see the impact and transformation of their efforts.
North Mackay, February 18th
Nestled in the heart of Mackay is the beautiful Kommo Toera Trail. It is a Melaleuca forest, seasonal wetland, and is home to a diverse array of plants and animals. Unfortunately, this area is under threat by invasive weeds. These weeds can change the environment enough that our native plants and animals fail to thrive.
We are looking for people passionate about making a difference in the environment and able to lend a hand as we rehabilitate this beautiful area.
Come help us restore this vital habitat!

Cottesloe, February 19th
Perth is home to some of the most pristine beaches in the world. With their crystal clear turquoise waters and clean white sand, our beaches attract crowds of thousands over the summer months. But with increased urban developments, our iconic locations are now under threat from invasion of weed species, decline of native plants and severe erosion from tides, storms and uncontrolled public access.
We will be at Cottesloe Beach on this day. Join our team leaders for a day out at the beach as we help plant native seedlings and remove invasive species to reduce erosion and improve habitat.
Melville, Feb 19th and 17 other dates
Did you know that the home range of a wombat is just under 25ha? Or that Powerful Owls require up to 4,000ha of high-quality habitat per breeding pair? These numbers are large, much larger than we might imagine are needed for some our native wildlife to survive and thrive. Our Green Links projects address this need by extending, reconnecting and recreating large areas of bushland habitat for a range of animals – and for plants too, that need places for their seed to spread and establish.

Listed as a wetland of international significance under the RAMSAR convention, it is home to a number of endangered migratory bird species.
In January of 2019 a fire devastated a large section of the Reserve, reducing native vegetation and opening up opportunity for invasive species to take hold.
