Working Abroad (http://www.workingabroad.org) announces the launch of a new Volunteer in Australia program for U.S. residents.
The Conservation Volunteer in Australia offers a fun way to travel and explore Australia while helping to conserve the Australian environment. This 4-6 week program includes all accommodations, meals and project-related travel.
Volunteer projects include:
- Tree planting, seed collection and weed control
- Endangered flora and fauna surveys
- Construction and maintenance of walking trails
- Heritage and habitat restoration
- Erosion and salinity control
Volunteers work alongside other international volunteers and Australians and enjoy a variety of projects and locations throughout the program. According to Antonio D’Auria, Working Abroad Program Manager, “The Conservation Volunteer in Australia program is unique in that volunteers have the option of changing their volunteer project every 2 weeks. This means volunteer in Australia under this project can experience many different parts of this unique country through one volunteer program”.
