Donate Your Time

You can also support the Island by volunteering your time and skills. Over the years, thousands of people have contributed their time, money and resources to looking after and enhancing the Island. We invite you to do this too! To read about some of the key projects we are needing volunteers for please visit our main website here. Please let us know if you have other expertise or ideas. Everyone can help! Some ‘jobs’ require very little strength, fitness or time; others are perfect for those who love a challenge!

We can sometimes subsidise boat fares for volunteers, and offer complimentary accommodation to those making significant contributions, for example WWOOFers.

Volunteering is a great way to experience something different and give back at the same time. You’ll support environmentalists, scientists, as well as people from the local community, and get the chance to develop important skills. Experience nature, while being part of a team that are bonded by a common goal: to protect and enhance the Island. You’ll have the experience of monitoring and caring for stunning habitats, and the species that live here. It’s a safe, enjoyable way to learn more about conservation and to protect one of the most significant places in Otago.
