Our conservation team

You’ll often see our dedicated team out on the coast helping to implement long-term conservation strategies for the protection of the Surf Coast’s native vegetation and wildlife.

The Conservation Team works closely with university and TAFE groups and often have several groups completing placement throughout the year.

Students studying their Bachelor of Environmental Science or TAFE Diploma of Conservation Land Management are often required to undertake a certain number of practical hours.

The Great Ocean Road Coast welcomes the extra hands and help provide training for hands-on practical management strategies.
