Volunteer with DOC

In addition to the regular one day trips run by the Motuora Restoration Society, there is a five day DOC volunteer programme.

The five-day programme

During June, July, August and September DOC offers 5 day volunteer stints staying on the island in the bach (cottage), right on the beach. Duties include planting, nursery work, collecting seeds and weeding. No special skills needed, you’ll be working alongside the ranger on the island. There will be time also to explore and enjoy the beauty of this precious place.

Programme dates are available on the DOC website.
