Interns - various opportunities

Waiheke-based and remote internship opportunities with sustainability-focused Charitable Trust. WRT cares deeply about the environment and we want others to jump on board with us - you can help!

Nursery Work Support

Nursery work includes pricking out seedlings from seed trays into tubes and into planter bags, moving plants around the nursery as they transition from newly pricked out seedlings to mature ready-to-plant saplings.

Weed Control

Controlling plant pests or weed is a very important part of the conservation project on Motutapu. We control a number of weeds but the main target is moth plant, an insidious vine that slowly strangles the native trees it attacks.
