come from the local area, and pretty much all around the world. Wherever they originate from, they all share a willingness to work hard and make a genuine contribution to the on-going restoration of the site.
For our volunteers from overseas [or from elsewhere in NZ] we have a 'volunteer house' in Punakaiki village where they stay for the duration of their engagement with the site. Each year, we hold a number of community planting events including hosting the local Barrytown school, whose involvement with the petrels dates back to the 1950's.
Volunteer participation is integral to the site's [continuing] success; it is the 'people' element, and the related stories that permeate their lives that makes this project so special. As we look to implement the site master plan [here], we will be capturing and sharing more and more of these stories.
All our volunteer activities are directed by a skilled CVNZ Team Leader-for more information on what a volunteer day looks like [click here] and to see how you can be part of the programme, click here.
THANK-YOU TO ALL OUR WONDERFUL PEOPLE!
