Adventure Conservation is fun, challenging and takes place in wild places. It delivers important conservation outcomes that could not be done by conventional paid staff because it is too expensive or logistically impossible. Volunteers can find activities that suit a broad range of ages, fitness levels, conservation skills and wilderness experience. But they all have one thing in common they can be done by people who care about wild places and want to protect them for future generations. Outdoor Adventure enthusiasts who go fishing, kayaking, rafting, bush walking, climbing, canyoning, four wheel driving or horse or mountain bike riding can provide valuable input into managing our natural environment whilst having fun. Trained volunteers, who enjoy adventure activities, can provide great value to conservation in remote areas and areas of high conservation value by recording what they see, removing isolated small infestations of weeds, and doing the essential follow up monitoring of previous restoration programs, as they would normally go through these areas anyway. By assisting in managing our natural resources you can build a relationship with the National Parks, Forestry and Crown land managers which can lead to improved access to these areas. Participating in these activities with local landowners and managers can, in some programs, mean you have a local guide to update you on local issues and stories about the land.
