Our volunteering might seem to be extreme in terms of where we go and the tasks we tackle, and it is definitley an adventure – its part of why we do it. But we also recognise that these areas deserve and need our help like many other areas of Tasmania. We raft and we weed and we clean-up. We volunteer alongside and in cooperation with Parks and Wildlife Service Ranger staff

Where we work

We are Wildcare members passionate about caring for Tasmania’s wild rivers in real and practical ways. Our work is off the beaten track and on the wild rivers of Tasmania. In the past we have undertaken work on the Franklin and Jane Rivers

What we do

Our volunteering might seem to be extreme in terms of where we go and the tasks we tackle, and it is definitely an adventure – its part of why we do it. But we also recognise that these areas deserve and need our help like many other areas of Tasmania. We raft and we weed and we clean-up. We volunteer alongside and in cooperation with Parks and Wildlife Service Ranger staff. All on some of the most beautiful untamed wild rivers you will ever encounter. We are keeping the wild rivers wild and natural and having a great time into the bargain.

To participate you will need to be fit, enthusiastic, familiar with remote camping, be independent but good at working in a team if you are going to tackle the river projects. There are however a number of logistics, organisation and support activities that we would love some help with, so if you aren’t able to head off on the river you can still contribute to the care and conservation of wild rivers in Tasmania.
