We have volunteers opportunities for our Beach Scrub Project, which aims to protect and restore beach scrub semi-evergreen vine thickets, a critically endangered ecosystem that’s crucial for stabilizing sand dunes and protecting coastal communities and inland vegetation from storm surges.
Beach Scrub can be found in small scattered patches hugging the mainland and islands of eastern Queensland. Our project focuses on protecting 17 beach scrub sites located from just north of Townsville to Bowen. We run regular single day trips around Townsville and monthly multi-day camping trips to Bowen and Cape Upstart for the nature and adventure lovers.
-Removing weeds from beach scrub habitats
-Collecting marine debris from adjoining beach areas.
-Plant identification (weeds and natives)
This is a great opportunity to gain skills and experience in practical conservation work. It offers the opportunity to see and experience out of the way places up and down the coast from Townsville whilst making a positive impact to these environments.
Ideal for volunteers who enjoy being outdoors and have a moderate level of fitness. No prior experience is needed, just enthusiasm and a desire to help out.
So come and get your hands dirty whilst helping the environment and learning new skills!
Trips take place on most Thursdays and Fridays, from 7am to 2pm. Transport is provided from Townsville.
