Get involved

 People volunteer for a variety of reasons. For some, it's a chance to give back to the community and contribute to the people and environment around them. For others, it offers an opportunity to develop important skills and knowledge that can benefit you in all facets of life.

The La Trobe Wildlife Sanctuary depends on the amazing work of volunteers to ensure the development and prosperity of the Sanctuary itself and the community it serves. We thank anyone who helps contribute and welcome you all to visit and enjoy the many offerings of the Sanctuary.
