Our work on Norfolk Island is hands on. We will be working within Norfolk Island National Park, other reserves and on private conservation land. A large focus will be on bush-land restoration to improve habitat for over 55 threatened or endangered species, and up to 18 species of seabirds that breed within the Norfolk Island group. However, wildlife and habitat management can be a complex business and so at any time we might be helping out with feral animal control, doing research to improve our management, or simply brainstorming with local ecologists and land managers to find better ways of doing things.
You will be working alongside like-minded people, National Park rangers, local naturalist and scientists and Norfolk Islanders. Of course there will be plenty of time to enjoy the natural wonders of the islands; snorkeling in pristine ocean waters, bushwalking and bird-watching along National Park walking trails, exploring the World Heritage listed Kingston and Arthurs Vale ruins from the islands convict history, and of course enjoying the world renowned hospitality of Norfolk Islanders.
