Restoration & Research Field Trips
On a Save the Koala Research or Restoration Field Trip you will work in the Australian bush with experienced AKF staff including scientists, Koala experts and habitat restoration enthusiasts. One day you may find yourself hiking through spectacular Eucalypt forests chatting with field ecologists about the Feather-tailed Gliders you saw the night before, and the next you may be standing on a mountain top admiring a perfect sunset with a group of newly made friends. Team members come from a variety of countries and a wide range of backgrounds and usually share a fascination for wildlife, conservation and the Australian bush. No qualifications or past experience are required apart from enthusiasm and a certain level of fitness. Your project leader will teach you everything you need to know to participate in the field trips on offer.

Bird watchers, wildlife enthusiasts and nature photographers can enjoy opportunities to see unique wildlife in beautiful natural settings while learning about the ecology of the environments on which they depend. Learn about vital conservation efforts to save our forests and also help to restore habitat links by planting trees with our experienced restoration staff.
