Our friends over at Wild Mob have released information on two brand new projects for you guys to get involved with. Known for running conservation adventure trips in Queensland, Wild Mob focus on organising meaningful, inspiring and beneficial projects, thus improving the environment and the world around us.
Calling all explorers/those who relish the great outdoors…
Check this out:
“Keen to explore the Australian bush? Or maybe enjoy your very own secluded beach? Why not do both?
Spend a week living in the bush, assisting with an endangered Wallaby recovery plan. Then for a change of pace, in the second week, you’ll sail to a secluded island and help with ecosystem restoration and reef monitoring!
Be assured though, you’ll have plenty of time to explore these unique environments, too! You’ll get to snorkel on the Great Barrier Reef, hike through the endangered Brigalow Belt or just relax under a tree with a book while the sun sets.
All you need to do is get yourself to the start point in Mackay, and we’ll take care of the rest”
Brampton Island Conservation Project
Assist Natural Resource Managers with conservation work on Brampton Island in the Whitsundays. The work includes eradicating invasive vegetation, beach clean up, conducting surveys on the coral reef and plenty of extra time to go snorkelling, swimming and hiking.
Avocet Conservation Project
Survey feral animals on the reserve by setting camera traps and monitoring for activity. Participants may assist with care and management of Bridled Nailtail Wallabies (seasonal availability) and general reserve maintenance. The project includes a nocturnal wildlife safari, extra time to go hiking and a visit to nearby Minerva Hills National Park and Mt Zamia.
