Volunteer your time and expertise

We are calling on AABR members and supporters (including councils, businesses and other organisational members) to consider whether they might be able to contribute some time to the volunteer effort over the next 6-12 months.

There are many ways you can help. We welcome unskilled volunteers – the backbone of the emergency response –  but we are particularly seeking people who can give of their expertise to inform under-supported land managers and private landholders in high priority fire-affected areas about post-fire weeding so that they can better secure recovery of faunal habitats.

When we have a database of volunteers we can then match volunteers to those in need. Only suitably trained and experienced bush regenerators will be matched to managers asking for technical knowhow – but unskilled workers are also much needed.

We will be prioritising sites whose managers have a capacity to provide the logistic support to the volunteers. In some cases these may be individual landholders while in others it may be organisations with whom AABR is collaborating (be it a local government, a state agency or an NRM group).

Once we have matched the volunteer to the recipient we will leave the parties to make their own arrangements.

DONATE TIME AND TALENT

The survey below will capture your capacity to volunteer. We’re looking for a variety of skills in post-fire on-ground assessments and advice, educational endeavours and project coordination.
