The wet tropics of Queensland represent the last remaining part of Australia’s primeval forest. In a home to parrots, pythons, possums, and tree kangaroos, we need volunteers to help shape our understanding of how climate change alters landscapes, and what this means for the creatures who live there. Volunteers will spot nocturnal wildlife, conduct surveys of birds, lizards and frogs, and more.
Work with the Maori people to protect the natural resources in New Zealand, which is of great importance to their traditional culture. International Student Volunteers (a non-profit organization) invites you to help out in the overall maintenance and regeneration of the fragile ecosystems in northern New Zealand. After giving back, you will then reward yourself by participating in an incredible two week adventure tour, which includes black water rafting in underground caves, Kiwi Encounter experience, grade five white water rafting and so much more! New Zealand has a very diverse landscape and unique flora and fauna, with up to 80% of native trees, flowers and ferns endemic to the country; the plants and animals found in New Zealand evolved in isolation for millions of years but have now been slowly degrading.
