Volunteers play a major role in managing the care of country in the Alinytjara Wilurara (AW) region.
Aboriginal people from communities across AW have a long history of caring for the different sub-landscapes in the region and continue to work together with the AW Landscape staff to sustainably manage the land now and into the future. Volunteers who are involved in projects in AW learn about natural resources management alongside traditional owners and people from other regions.
It is through the contribution of time, energy, expertise, equipment and resources by volunteers and partnerships in the region that AW Landscape staff can:
- effectively gather important baseline data about the state of the region
- increase knowledge of sustainable land management programs
- monitor the health and trends of local flora, fauna and pest species.
Volunteering in the AW region is a rewarding experience for people of all ages and presents an opportunity to make new friends, learn new things and have fun while keeping fit in the South Australian outback.
Work specific and safety training is provided to all volunteers and a number of different volunteering opportunities are available.
