So, you’ve been thinking about a Wild Mob conservation adventure… but you’re not sure what you’re in for!
Presenting a day in the life of a Wild Mob volunteer in pictures!
7am: Wake up to another pristine day in the Great Barrier Reef. We set up camp on the shores of the island we’re working on. Wild Mob provides all camping gear for the week (and if you ask nicely, we’ll even help you set up your tent!).
7.30am: Breakfast aboard our catamaran Wild Cat. A selection of fruits, cereals, toasts, juices and if you’re in need of a little extra fuel, a bacon and egg fry up!
8am: Time for some conservation work! A big focus on these islands is bush regeneration and weed control in critically endangered beach rainforest areas, key habitats for countless marine and shore species that call these islands home.
10am: Break for a morning cuppa and some fresh muffins, baked by our Skipper Steve!
12pm: Sit back and marvel at the difference a few hours of hard work can make!
1pm: A spot of lunch! Fresh salad wraps and leftovers from the night before… yum!
2pm: Time to relax and explore! A spot of hiking…
… with plenty of time to enjoy the view!
or perhaps a boat ride to a secluded bay…
… with a little time for marine debris clean up of course!
For the water babies, there’s snorkelling…
Or some sea turtle spotting from the deck of Wild Cat!
5.30pm: “Sundowners” on Wild Cat. Sundowner is Wild Mob speak for some refreshing bevvies and nibbles consumed on board Wild Cat. Some great tunes are also a must.
6.30pm: Dinner time! Tonight, our project leader Derek is taking us to India with vege korma, lamb rogan josh and homemade naan bread!
And so the sun sets on another amazing day of education, experience and a little elbow grease.
While every day is a little different, you’ll always be making a real, measurable difference to the habitats your working with, enjoying the company of inspiring, like-minded folk and discovering spectacular new places.
