RESET & RENEWAL – Support your local wetlands

Wetlands Reset & Renewal

Hunter Wetland Centre Australia is Australia’s longest-running community owned wetlands centre. After 33 years of serving our community in wetlands conservation, environmental education and eco-tourism we are undertaking a major Reset & Renewal Strategy in 2018.

The new strategy aims to ensure the Wetlands continues to operate in the face of falling income and increasing expenses, and without ongoing operational funding from governments. We need your support to enable the Centre to be managed by our amazing volunteers whilst we talk to governments, businesses and our community to develop and implement the strategy.

Donate today to support your Wetlands. 

We hope you like our new website, and that you will use the donation page to support your local charity.

Thanks Sandra! Sandra has been volunteering at Hunter Wetlands Centre Australia for around 6 years. She plays a critical part in helping us keep our RAMSAR Wetlands of International Importance status by doing water testing on our ponds every single week. Her previous work experience included big names such as BHP and Bureau Veritas and she brings her specific skill set to our team. Outside of her Wetlands work, she shows Rhodesian Ridgebacks and Portuguese Podengos!

Feel free to show Sandra some love in the comments - we love having her on board as part of the Hunter Wetlands Centre Australia team!

It is National Volunteers Week thanks to Volunteering Australia. Did you know Hunter Wetlands Centre Australia is the only community owned and operated Wetlands in Australia? And our entire office staff, outside crew and everyone is else made up of Volunteers? #NVW2018

You can volunteer too! We are always on the lookout for new people to join our team. Whether you have outdoorsy skills, marketing skills, corporate skills or just want to meet people, register and get involved today - https://wetlands.org.au/get-involved/#volunteers
