The department runs a variety of volunteer projects across the state including scientific research, community education and manual labour.

  • 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.
