This conservation programme in New Zealand is a great way to enjoy New Zealand's beautiful environment whilst making a practical contribution to its conservation .
New Zealand has one of the world's most spectacular natural landscapes, with rainforests, fjords, beautiful coastlines, mountains and volcanoes.
You will be put in teams with other volunteers (usually groups of between 6 and 10 people) and travel together to complete conservation projects in urban, regional and remote areas.
You will be assigned to a range of different conservation projects, with a mixture of activities including tree planting, track building, flora and fauna surveys, weed control and heritage restoration projects.
The conservation volunteer teams include local and international volunteers of a wide range of ages from different backgrounds across New Zealand and the world.
You will be managed by professional team leaders who are qualified to ensure the safety and welfare of volunteers. Volunteers are able to choose from a selection of starting locations around New Zealand, and each week or two means a different project in a different location.
