Wild Mob works with the best and brightest on some of the most pressing conservation issues across Australia and the world.

Our science-led conservation programs help protect more than 90 threatened species in some of the world’s most unique and beautiful places.

Our major program areas range from Outback Queensland and the tropical islands of the Great Barrier Reef, to Norfolk Island and New Zealand. There we conduct bush restoration, pest and weed control, debris removal as well as research and recovery programs for threatened species.

Our volunteer expeditions

Our volunteer expeditions are at the heart of what we do. They empower everyday people (like you!) to make a real, measurable difference to our environment.

Our volunteers travel to our conservation program sites with up to 10 others for up to a week. Mornings are committed to conservation work guided by our biologists. This can include anything from rubbish clean up at turtle nesting sites, to destroying the weeds that smother regenerating forests, to maintaining our wallaby nursery.

Afternoons are spent exploring the natural wonders of the site. This can include anything from snorkelling and kayaking, to hiking and birdwatching, to simply relaxing and soaking up the beauty!

What our volunteers say

This was an amazing experience, getting to know more about nature, and gaining friendships. It was amazing to see how much more knowledge that I had gained about the environment, and how important it is to our community. Wild Mob is an amazing program that makes you become one with nature.


The Bridled Nailtail Wallaby Experience is something that I will never forget. The Wild Mob staff were incredibly patient with us, who had no experience with wallabies or even being in the bush. We all agreed that we learnt something new every day.


What a satisfying way to spend a week in paradise!


Working with Wild Mob was incredible! Being able to get real hands-on experience and learning how conservation works in the real world has been eye opening. It was truly a once in a lifetime experience.


The work we were doing is going to have a real, valuable impact.
