Volunteer Overseas in Australia

Volunteer Programs Australia

Australia is a mammoth continent, rich in natural resources and indigenous flora and fauna. Sadly, however, environmental and wildlife conservation has often been neglected in the face of economic development and the country faces the harsh realities of this failure to protect its most precious assets.

It is hard to deny the impacts of climate change given the increasingly horrific effects of severe droughts and extreme bush-fires on both human and animal life and rising sea temperatures degrading the colossal Great Barrier Reef and its myriad marine life. Largely unrestrained mining, logging, commercial fishing, ocean dredging and animal culling has corroded natural habitats and endangered native species.  It is time to turn the tide on these damaging activities and stem the decline.

Love Volunteers is committed to supporting our wonderful partners on critical programs aimed at protecting native wildlife and educating the public on the importance of sustainable and humane practices.  People looking to volunteer in Australia with Love Volunteers will discover some truly iconic wildlife conservation focused volunteer programs.
