Volunteer in New Zealand 'The land of the long white cloud'
This program has three components: the conservation work that we do in the forest, the manual work that we do around the sanctuary, and the sightseeing that we do around the region.
The conservation tasks that are perform in the sanctuary and on the behalf of the Department of Conservation are performed at a professional level, and I will receive the training necessary to reach the required high standard.
Throughout my stay I will learn and practice the basic navigational skills and tools required to operate in the dense rainforest.I will also learn the meaning of sustainability through observation and practice. The opportunities to learn are endless.
