The Department of Parks and Wildlife works with, and on behalf of, the people of Western Australia to protect and conserve the state’s parks, wildlife, forests and other natural assets. Individuals, volunteers, community groups, schools and businesses can all contribute to a vast range of important conservation programs across the state, such as campground hosting at some of our most popular parks during peak holiday periods, volunteering at the WA Herbarium, becoming volunteer rehabilitators of injured wildlife, or by becoming a community partner in a major conservation initiative such as the Kimberley Science and Conservation Strategy.
