Better Earth Volunteer – Kudriemitchie / Coongie Lakes National Parks SA
Conservation Volunteers Australia has an opportunity for the adventurous volunteer who loves the Australian Outback!
Travel from Adelaide to Kudriemitchie Outstation (approximately 1,100km north east of Adelaide) on the southern boundary of the Coongie Lakes National Park. Volunteers are required from Saturday 12th July to Tuesday 22nd July 2014 (11 days/10 nights).
The park has an infestation of the invasive introduced weed buffel grass and volunteer assistance is required to help control this weed. Buffel grass out-competes native vegetation and changes the fire regime, thus changing native vegetation communities.
As well as providing practical assistance, volunteers will also learn about some of the history of the region, remote Outback living, plant identification, weed eradication skills and fencing skills.
For this remote camping residential project volunteers will need to bring their own sleeping bag, pillow, sleeping mat, towel, torch, toiletries, change of clothes, medication. Volunteers are also required to bring their own long sleeved shirt, long pants, 2Lt water bottle, sturdy work or hiking boots and hat.
Please note volunteers will also need to make a financial contribution to the Project cost of $500 for 10 nights away ($300 concession).
No experience necessary. Suited to volunteers aged 18 years and over with good fitness levels as the role involves full day commitment over approximately 10 days.
