McMinns Lagoon, Aug 20th and 19 other dates
Wetlands play a critical role in flood mitigation, water and carbon storage, and supporting an abundance of unique local plant and animal species. Greater Darwin’s wetlands also have cultural significance to indigenous groups and other local residents of Darwin. They support healthy community wellbeing through providing learning, tourism and recreational opportunities. They also provide an accessible point of access to nature and wildlife for people living in urban areas. Conservation Volunteers are building a sustainable strategy for the management of this area and invite volunteers to be a part of this management with activities including weed removal, watering, tree trimming, track maintenance, tree planting, wildlife monitoring and surveys (native frogs), and much more.

Marrara, Aug 21st and 1 other date
This project aims to collect cane toads in local areas of Darwin. These will be turned into "toad sausages" to teach quolls to avoid cane toads in the wild. Cane toads were introduced to QLD in 1935 and they have rapidly spread to the NT leading to devastating effects on our native wildlife.

Lee Point, Sep 19th and 1 other date
Conservation Volunteers will be helping to restore important habitat to protect the critically endangered eastern curlew, a large wading shorebird reaching up to 66cm tall. The eastern curlew requires two types of habitats to survive, one within the tidal zone, mudflats, and mangrove swamps and one above it amongst sand dunes and salt pans when their feeding ground becomes inundated. It has an elongated curved bill for finding food in mudflats, and long legs that enable them to wade throughout mudflats.
We will be undertaking different restoration activities and bird surveys to improve their habitat at Lee Point Reserve. Depending on the time of year, you might see other migratory bird species, waders and nesting turtles on the beach.
