Volunteers will be providing some tender loving care to an area of remnant vegetation along the Gooseponds. These areas are important to look after as they provide special insight into what the site may have looked like with the surrounding vegetation pre-european settlement.

By removing invasive weeds that are competing with native species we increase their survival rate. In doing this, we will see an increase in the native vegetation cover, which will in turn overshadow weeds to reduce their abundance whilst most importantly providing habitat for other native flora & fauna.

Conservation Volunteers accommodation is not available on this project, but all levels of tourist accommodation are available in Mackay, from backpacker hostels to high-quality hotels. A team leader collects local and visiting volunteers daily from pick-up points in the city.

Volunteers need to bring and wear long pants, a long-sleeved shirt, boots or sturdy shoes, and a broad-brimmed hat. It is also recommended that volunteers bring and use sun-screen (30+) and tropical-strength insect repellent.

We will spend a half day at the site, for more details on which site and times please contact our office at 4951 0933
