The Eastern Curlew Migratory Shore Bird resting site restoration works;
This new and exciting project is here to help restore the significant resting habitat of the critically endangered Eastern Curlew migratory shore bird. Each year these incredible birds travel more than 20,000 kilometres (round trip) as part of their yearly migration. They breed as far north as arctic circle within Russia and North-eastern China, and make their way to the eastern shores of Australia to rest in summer. On this epic journey, these birds face risks from increasing pressures of coastal habitat loss along their migratory route, limited access to food and resting sites and even hunting. We are here to give them a helping hand.

Hollows are needed for many species that inhabit our native woodlands. From birds, to gliders, possums and tree frogs, hollows are in short supply in Western Sydney due to the loss of mature trees in the landscape. CVA is building and installing habitat boxes for birds, gliders and microbats. This project and workshop will help you understand the importance of hollows and help you identifiy some of the key species and types of habitat required by those species in Western Sydney.
Wollondilly, Mar 9th and 1 other date
From Campbelltown to the Southern Highlands, Sydney’s South-West is home to nationally important populations of koalas virtually on the city’s doorstep and these populations are under serious threat from development & the effects of suburban sprawl.
Over the past year and a half Conservation Volunteers Australia have helped local councils to collect critical data on the local koala populations, as well as restore key koala habitat within the Wingecarribee and Campbelltown LGAs.
Now, join CVA in the next phase of this exciting program as we move onto the Wollondilly Shire (Appin) and help us replicate this effort to conserve the elusive koalas of this region.
The focus of this project day will be assisting government experts with their koala radio-tracking program by tracking collared koalas and collecting data on their location, tree species use and other habitat characteristics.
This is a fabulous opportunity to contribute to cutting edge survey work on a virtually un-studied population of koalas, which is critical in helping understand their distribution & needs. This information will be key to informing local council planning of habitat protection zones to safeguard these koala populations into the future.
Kurnell, Mar 9th and 6 other dates
Sheer sandstone cliffs dominate the park's dramatic coastline, making for a beautiful view. Our site marks the actual landing spot of the first British explorers to Australian shores and the first "meeting place" between them and the local Dharawal people in 1770. Volunteers will engage in conservation activities within the heritage listed area to revitalise the original habitat as surveyed by Captain Cook`s botanists. Tasks will include weeding large areas of invasive species for future planting activities.
Cattai, March 10th
A weekend of bush regeneration, camping out and star gazing in the Cattai National Park. The Mitchell Park picnic area is a great place to pause for a bite and take in the bushland scenery of Cattai National Park – particularly after working up a sweat on one of the park’s great walking tracks.
Lunch campout, dinner and spotlighting for the greater Glider and the Nankeen Night Kestrel will be highlights of your weekend. Participate and learn more about psyllids and their impacts in the Cumberland Plain. Survey their impacts on the gum trees and the forest.
On Sunday head to nearby Scheyville National Park and meet with some of the rare wetland birds and reptiles.
Berry, March 12th
The Berry Corridors Project is part of the Great Eastern Ranges initiative to establish and protect flora and fauna passage between the escarpment and the coast in partnership with Berry Landcare. Conservation Volunteers will be assisting a range of landholders in the region to plant trees, remove invasive weeds, install fencing and monitor progress of this exciting project.
Berry is located approximately 50km South of Wollongong and is a picturesque suburb nestled beneath the escarpment of the Illawarra. With a rich history of farming in the region, there are a number of landholders on board to assist in the protection of local biodiversity. We look forward to connecting our volunteers to these places and creating refuge for our fauna in the years to come.
Sydney, March 15th
AON EMPLOYEES ONLY
This project focuses on hands-on bush re-generation at Bradleys Head, where we will be improving the toadlets native Sydney sandstone woodland habitat by removing invasive weed species. You will also have the unique opportunity to undertake some citizen science alongside the National Parks Association to look at the behaviours of water dragons and how they’re adapting to urbanisation. The data you collect will hopefully lead to better informed decisions on how we can successfully live side-by-side with fauna in our cities.

La Perouse, March 20th
State Street employees only:
2016 sees the Congwong Beach sand dunes restoration project commence at La Perouse in Botany Bay in partnership with National Parks and Wildlife services. The area is a place of significance for traditional land owners the Gweagal and Kameygal with important cultural sites located within the park. A beautiful part of Botany Bay, favoured by scuba divers, snorkelers, families, travellers and residents alike. The focus of the Congwong Beach sand dunes restoration project is removal of Bitou bush from the dunes, to rehabilitate and re-establish the native vegetation. Sand dunes are vital in protecting the coast line. Not only do they provide a suitable habitat to many species, they act as a buffer against significant weather events. Plants play a pivotal role in sand dunes. It is for this reason this project is so important. The project day will include a tour of Bare Island Fort, normally restricted to the public, subject to availability. Bare Island Fort was completed in 1889 amid concerns of invasion at the time. Listed on the State Heritage Register, the fort is as an example of nineteenth century coastal military defence which almost completely intact.
