Where would HSI be without our volunteers? These passionate individuals help us on a daily basis and generously offer their time, energy and positive outlook to support our work and the animals they care so deeply about. There are not enough ways to say thank you to these individuals.
SCIENTIFIC NOMINATIONS AND RESEARCH
We are always looking for more volunteers to help us prepare scientific nominations for threatened species and ecological communities under the Federal EPBC Act. HSI has many volunteers throughout Australia who have helped our campaigners by completing research and/or writing nominations to increase legal recognition and protection of our precious species and ecological communities. If you have ecological expertise, and you have completed an undergraduate science or related degree, please get in touch with us for information on the species and communities we are working on getting listed.
A great way you can help HSI reach more people across Australia is through the distribution of our brochures.
We currently have more than 500 health food shops, cafes, restaurants, hairdressers, newsagents, and similar retail outlets displaying and/or distributing HSI brochures. We're always looking for new opportunities to display our brochures to publicise the work of the organisation and raise funds.
We also have a number of committed supporters who help us by mail dropping our brochures while they walk.
If you are interested in helping us spread the word by displaying or distributing our brochures please call us on (02) 9973 1728 or send us an email. We can send you a sample brochure, or a starter pack with one stand and approximately 50 brochures.
HSI has many volunteers who help us with a variety of office work including mail-outs, writing receipts, filing and typing. Our only office within Australia is located in Avalon Beach, NSW. If you can spare some time up in this idyllic location on Sydney’s Northern Beaches, we would love to hear from you.
HSI does not currently have any projects within Australia where we can provide volunteers with "hands-on" animal protection work.
