Nature Conservation Volunteer Opportunities

Friends of Reserves - On ground environmental rehabilitation

Supported by funding from the Shire of Augusta Margaret River’s Environmental Management Fund, Nature Conservation currently assists a number of Friends of Reserve Groups caring for local reserves. Groups include:

Friends of A Class Reserve
Friends of Barrett Street Reserve
Friends of Riverslea Reserve
Friends of Gracetown and Cowaramup Bay
Friends of the Wardandi Track (Cowaramup)

Nature Conservation assists these groups by coordinating work days undertaking on ground activities (weeding, planting, rubbish collection). Groups also get the opportunity to participate in nature interpretation activities such as possum, bird and wildflower walks and undertake monitoring of the condition of their reserves.

Western Ringtail Possum Surveying

Supported by funding from the Shire of Augusta Margaret River’s Environmental Management Fund, Nature Conservation has recently trained a number of local volunteers in possum surveying. Once trained these volunteers will form small teams to undertake possum surveys in priority areas of the Margaret River region. The surveys will be aimed at providing the Shire and Nature Conservation with a better picture of Western Ringtail Possum populations across the region.

There is potential to add additional volunteers to the list and for training to happen on the job. Surveying teams will be allocated sites and will be required to undertake day time and night time surveying and to upload data to the Atlas of Living Australia.
