National Volunteer Week

Volunteers make an enormous contribution to society and the third week of May is designated National Volunteer Week which serves to acknowledge those people who so generously give of their time and services.

With more than 29 million hectares of Parks across Western Australia, every little bit of help makes a difference. Volunteers in the Parks sector are a much-appreciated resource and during the last financial year, more than 5100 volunteers contributed 638,000 hours to Parks and Wildlife projects across WA. Parks and Wildlife run a variety of volunteer projects across the state ranging from the Wildcare Helpline and associated wildlife rehabilitation programs, campground hosting at some of the most popular national parks, flora and fauna monitoring, or volunteering at the herbarium.
If you love Parks and think your skills are something that could help protect, conserve or make Park experiences better please let us know! The WA Parks Foundation also welcomes volunteers. Please let us know how you would like to help, for example by helping out in the office or in a Park, or by providing equipment or services. Interested people can contact us at
