Australia is renowned for its kaleidoscope of indigenous creatures. Unfortunately, despite strict environmental regulations, the continued destruction of habitats, combined with climate change and the effect of invasive species, has wreaked havoc on Australia’s extraordinary wildlife population.
We’ll be learning from local rangers and conservation experts about the threats facing Australia’s magnificent indigenous wildlife, and the measures being taken to protect it. To achieve our purpose, spend time volunteering in the region’s leading wildlife conservation park, taking part in hands-on projects with iconic animals such as the koala and the kangaroo including gathering food and feeding the animals, as well as helping plant foliage as part of a legacy project.
