The department runs a variety of volunteer projects across the state.

Volunteer projects range from the Wildcare Helpline and associated wildlife rehabilitation programs, campground hosting at some of our most popular national parks, flora and fauna monitoring, or volunteering at the herbarium.

  • Volunteers are registered, insured against personal accident, and given guidance and training.
  • People under the age of 16 may take part, but need parental permission and control—unfortunately, they cannot be insured.
  • Accommodation is generally not available in remote locations.
  • We also have limited Educational Work Experience Programs.
  • Registered volunteers are eligible for the volunteer rewards scheme, which includes discounts and subscriptions to Parks and Wildlife publications and park passes.
