Wyndham Vale, June 26th
Volunteer day for HOPPERS CROSSING SECONDARY COLLEGE STUDENTS ONLY @ Wyndham Vale
Terrick Terrick, June 26th
Come join Conservation Volunteers as we help conserve the picturesque Terrick Terrick National Park in Northern Victoria.
Mt Terrick Terrick is a low granite outcrop that rises above the surrounding flat riverine plains at Mitiamo. This hill, and two others, and the surrounding flat land are covered in bushland and flat grasslands. Together, the granite outcrops, surrounding open forest, and indigenous grassland plains form the core of the Terrick Terrick National Park. The park protects one of the last areas of undisturbed vegetation in Northern Victoria.
In recent years, a number of outlying paddocks of native grassland were added to the National Park. These grasslands, and others inside the main body of the Park, are home to several species of plant which are rare and threatened in the region. They are also home to the largest known colony of the endangered Plains-wanderer. The Plains-wanderer is a small bird that resembles the Button Quail. The Plains-wanderer demands native grasses, daisies and grassland tall enough to conceal it from predators, making the Terrick Terrick grasslands a highly important area.
Volunteers will assist in helping to protect the grasslands from species such as Wheel Cactus, Box Thorn and Bathurst Burr. Also over the course of the project, volunteers will assit with biomass management for the protection of the Plains- Wanderer by maintaining and pulling down fences and fixing stock yards. Other tasks will include helping to maintain visitor facilities such as walking track clearing, road maintenance and picnic area maintenance.
If you would like any more information please email Bendigo@conservationvolunteers.com.au or call our Bendigo office on 03 5444 0777.

These vital conservation endeavours will provide critical habitat and protection as well as enhance and extend existing areas for Red-crowned Toadlets (Pseudophryne australis), improving their chances of breeding success and providing safe and healthy habitat to avoid predators and pollution.
Shoalwater, Jun 28th and 4 other dates
The coastal reserves of the Perth metropolitan area are under immense pressure from urban development and increasing population growth. This project focuses on one such area at Shoalwater Beach which falls within a larger project of the City of Rockinghams to increase biodiversity and habitat values within the coastal reserves of the whole Shoalwater Bay. This area is known quenda habitat and also hosts the graceful sun moth. There is also an abundance of bird life at this reserve including sightings of the southern giant petrel.
The dune system at this site was dominated by weeds such as sea spurge and rose pelagonium and had limited biodiversity of native species. We will be preparing the site for planting at the beginning of June, planting in July and following up with green stock maintenance in September and October this year to increase the biodiversity and habitat value of this beautiful stretch of coastline.
Werribee , Jun 28th and 2 other dates
Come and help our volunteer teams as we mulch and plant within the Werribee West Treatment Plant!
The Western Treatment Plant is famous for its migratory and resident birds. Over 270 species have been recorded on site, and there is a good chance that while you are working to improve habitat at the Treatment Plant you will have eagles soaring above your head!
We will be spreading mulch which helps to reduce erosion and reduce weeds, and planting native plants in the area which will also help stabilise the banks and improve habitat. Come and give us a hand as we improve biodiversity in this amazing bird haven!
Darwin, June 28th
Darwin and its surrounds are fortunate enough to be surrounded by some of the most beautiful and untouched coastline in the world. We have many unique and marine species such as the Snubnose dolphin that only reside right here in the Top End. Unfortunately though, with modern day pressures of an expanding population, and tidal influences from abroad, our beaches are littered with debris (rubbish) of all sorts. This debris is not only unsightly but it also has a huge impact on our marine life. Micro-plastics, and smaller pieces or coloured hard and soft plastics are of particular concern during our clean-ups. Fish and seabirds consume them, mistaking them for food and become poisoned.
During this project the team will learn about the effects marine debris has on the environment and the predominant origins of this debris, before heading out to some local beaches (Lee Point, East Point, Casuarina a Beach, Mindil Beach and Buffalo Creek) where we will survey targeted sections of beach. Did you know:
- Every piece of plastic made still exists in our environment today?
- The average plastic water bottle takes 450 years to break down?
Our selected beach locations are all known turtle nesting sites, important to the Top End and survival of these iconic marine species. After collection of debris, the team will catalogue and sort the debris so the data can be added to a larger national database – Tangaroa Blue.
***Please note we can bookings of up to 10-15 people for marine debris clean-ups. If you have a group interested please contact the office directly for more information. Bookings are still required.***
For further information please contact our Darwin Office on 08 8981 3206 or email firstname.lastname@example.org

The restoration and maintenance of this area are paramount to the preservation of this unique and beautiful ecological system, so come along, have fun and get involved in bush regeneration activities, habitat improvement, flora and fauna surveys, bird watching and water quality monitoring.
Mawson Lakes, Jun 29th and 25 other dates
Parafield Airport hosts the last known array of vernal pools within the Adelaide metro area. What are vernal pools? They are temporary pools of water that provide habitat for distinctive plants and animals. Discovered in 2001, they were assessed to be of high wetland value, with significant flora and uncommon aquatic fauna. Prior to their discovery, they were used for agricultural practices and recreational activities - farming, grazing and even a golf driving range!
CVA volunteers have been engaged to help restore this unique site by addressing issues such as weed management and reintroducing local plants.
This is a great opportunity to learn about this rare habitat in the heart of suburbia. Join us on the journey!
