McMinns Lagoon, Sep 26th and 12 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.

Darwin, September 27th
This project aims to collect cane toads in the Greater Darwin Area. 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.
Darwin, September 29th
9am to 1pm at Darwin Waterfront Precinct
Learn about some of the Territory’s animals who are on the brink of extinction due to a range of threats. There will be interactive displays and cameo appearances from native species.
Territory Wildlife Park is coordinating interactive displays which will include cameo appearances from our native species.
Conservation Volunteers will also have a display at the event to raise awareness about our Shorebird projects including the Eastern Curlew and other volunteering opportunities.
Marrara, Oct 2nd and 2 other dates
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.
Darwin, Oct 12th and 6 other dates
Knuckey Lagoon Reserve is an important habitat and resting site for hundreds of bird species and local wildlife, just 15 minutes out of Darwin City. The birdlife consists mainly of waterbirds and wader species attracted to the wetland during the extended dry season, and has been hailed by several national publications as one of the top 100 bird watching sites in Australia with sixty-seven species of birds having been recorded in the Reserve.
Conservation Volunteers recognise the importance of this wetland as a rich food source, and an important land pocket to preserve. The wetland backs on to native woodlands, with rare and beautiful plants including Banksias, Grevillea, Pandanus, Stringybarks, Woolybutts and Cycads.
We will be undertaking conservation activities including bird monitoring and surveys, invasive species management to help fire risk management in the area, and basic fencing to ensure its long term preservation.
Lee Point, Oct 25th and 8 other dates
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.
East Arm, Nov 7th and 8 other dates
This is a planting project designed to enhance the amenity of the East Arm Wharf entrance while providing significant environmental benefits and community engagement opportunities.
A mix of local native plant species with a structured and attractive appearance have been carefully selected for this project. The native plantings will complement a recently installed archway. The local native species will significantly increase the biodiversity value and habitat opportunities for native wildlife. It will provide a visual buffer from the Port operations and a wind break to assist with dust suppression.
Nightcliff, Dec 11th and 2 other dates
This monitoring project is based at Ludmilla Bay, a nationally important site for migratory shorebirds that visit Australian shores. The project will monitor shorebirds and the macro invertebrates living in intertidal sands that shorebirds rely upon for feeding.
This project will include field based and laboratory based work and provide important information about the food source available for a great variety of shorebirds that use the site including the Nationally critically endangered Great Knot and Far Eastern Curlew.
