Natural disasters like fires, earthquakes, droughts, floods and violent storms occur all too frequently. Man-made disasters such as oil-spills can cause significant damage to our natural environment too. Conservation Volunteers has a long history of assisting in both the response and recovery phase of numerous disasters ranging from devastating bushfires and cyclones to oil spills and whale-strandings.
Our volunteers support communities and the environment as they respond to and recover from disasters. Past activities have included cleaning and feeding oil-affected birds; reinstating fences after major bushfires; and restoring walking tracks after floods.
