The Yellow-eyed Penguin Trust is a community-based organisation dependent on volunteers to support its work. Opportunities for volunteering with the Trust are plenty, from governance to one-off community conservation days or regular volunteer days.
These opportunities include:
- Become a trustee and assist in the governance of this long-established and respected conservation NGO.
- ‘Wednesday Volunteers’ help in the nursery, raising seedlings and planting trees.
- ‘Ranger Volunteers’ assist with all aspects of the Trust’s conservation programme including planting, weed control and reserve maintenance.
- ‘Office Volunteers’ assist at the Trust’s Dunedin-based office doing anything from writing articles for the newsletter, stuffing envelopes and fundraising.
If you wish to register as a volunteer, contact the Trust Office
The Trust’s volunteer work does not involve handling penguins. This work requires a special wildlife handling permit from the Department of Conservation.
