Ways to Volunteer

Our volunteers are the heroes of our bird conservation work. By volunteering your time, effort or skills, you’re helping make our projects a reality – while being part of a community of like-minded people who love birds.

Volunteer to monitor birds

When you volunteer with us to monitor birds and their habitats, you’re collecting the data that informs our bird conservation work across the country.

Hear from BirdLife Australia Volunteers

“Knowing that even after 19 years every time I monitored Hooded Plovers I learnt something new.  And by mentoring new volunteers was able to pass on this knowledge.” – Val Ford – Friends of the Hooded Plover Mornington Peninsula VIC

“You will be part of an amazing organisation with a great group of similar-minded volunteers. It can sometimes be hard work, but where else would you rather be than on our many beautiful beaches helping these remarkable little birds to achieve success.”  –  Ash and Sue Read – Friends of the Hooded Plover Fleurieu Peninsula SA

“The best part of being a part of the group was that you learn so much about the birds and the environment they need to survive. The workshops are a great way to mix with other people who are interested in birds and the environment.” – Pam Brebner – Friends of the Hooded Plover Far West Victoria VIC
