Conservation Volunteers Australia is currently seeking six Green Army participants for their project, Restoring the balance in weed and erosion management on Fraser Island (Phase 1), commencing in late February for 20 weeks.
Participants will stay 4 days per week on Fraser Island (K’Gari) and will also be provided with all the tools, personal protection equipment and training required for each project.
If you know someone (or are) aged between 17 and 24, who is an Australian citizen or permanent resident that would like to be a part of a team that will make a real difference to the environment in our local community, please encourage them to apply.
Participants are paid an allowance while gaining skills, training and experience that can help them enter the workforce, improve their career opportunities or further their education and training.
