Conservation volunteers on Motuihe Island

After taking the ferry from Westhaven marina you will walk up to the nursery (10 mins) and help load the trailer with plants. You will then walk out to the planting site (15 mins) and help dig holes and plant trees. The work usually takes 2 hours. You will then return to the nursery for lunch (bring your own) and either explore the island or help in the nursery.


You do not need any skills. Just be reasonably active and keen to help. We provide all tools and training required. You will need suitable clothing for outdoors, rain or sun protection depending on the day and your lunch. We provide tea, coffee and milo. The day on the island is free but you need to book and pay for the ferry. Details from Fiona on
