Volunteer with Rainforest Rescue
We offer many opportunities for volunteers to get involved with Rainforest Guardianship, matching their interests, skills and experience with our organisational needs to tailor a specific conservation project and provide a rich and fulfilling experience for you.
Rainforest Rescue’s headquarters is located in Byron Bay, NSW. HQ occasionally has volunteers assisting with IT projects, admin projects, fundraising, events, etc. We like to assess the applicant’s skills and find projects suited to their experience and skill set.
Our Rainforest Nursery is located in the Daintree in Far North Qld. The Nursery often has volunteers assisting with seed collection, propagation, general maintenance, etc. Volunteers at the nursery generally have some experience in outdoor work such as gardening, landscaping, general labour, bush regeneration, land management, etc., and ideally, have some knowledge of plant species and/or propagation.
Please note: We do not currently offer weekend volunteering opportunities. Apologies for any inconvenience.
Being a not-for-profit organisation, we have minimal paid staff members to keep costs as low as possible. As a result, we cannot onboard inexperienced volunteers, as our paid staff often don’t have the time to train people from scratch and provide close supervision during the learning period.
Our Ideal Volunteer
Our ideal volunteer is someone who can commit to a regular schedule – whether that’s a few times a week, once a week, or once a month. Knowing when to expect our volunteers makes it a lot easier for us to plan workloads & assign tasks in advance.
