Wild Mob Norfolk Island Conservation Project – September

10 September 2018 - 18 September 2018

Wild Mob is a not-for-profit, non-political organisation that takes on-ground action to protect and conserve Australia’s most threatened species and ecosystems. Wild Mob crafts economically sustainable solutions to our most pressing environmental challenges by combining the aspirations of our partners into workable conservation models.

As part of the Norfolk Island Conservation Project, Wild Mob successfully launched their volunteers program in November 2014. Conservation trips are scheduled throughout the year, contact us for details on other trips.

Take a trip that matters: Norfolk Island http://youtu.be/I6r8XjqQ6To

Norfolk Island is an external Territory of Australia lying half way between New Zealand and New Caledonia. The Norfolk Island group (which includes Norfolk, Phillip & Nepean) is a globally important biodiversity hotspot, has a bewildering range of endemic plants, animals and ecosystems, and indeed, is a global priority for nature conservation.

The Norfolk Island Conservation Project will involve hands on work within Norfolk Island National Park, other reserves and on private land. A large focus will be on bush-land restoration to secure further habitat for almost 50 threatened or endangered species, and up to 18 species of seabirds that breed within the Norfolk Island group. You will be working alongside like-minded people, National Park rangers, local naturalist and scientists and Norfolk Islanders. Of course there will be plenty of time to enjoy the natural wonders of the islands; snorkeling in pristine ocean waters, bushwalking and bird-watching along National park walking trails, exploring the World Heritage listed Kingston and Arthurvale ruins from the islands convict history, and of course enjoying the renowned hospitality of Norfolk Island

The project is open to anybody with an interest in nature, a reasonable level of fitness, and a sense of fun and adventure. A Wild Mob project leader will be working alongside participants. Numbers are strictly limited to 10 participants.
