BACKGROUND

Wild Mountains has a vision of a world where people lead fulfilling lives while sharing the earth’s resources with all of the life forms on this planet and without degrading our life support systems.

We believe the best way of achieving this is through education.

When people participate in programs offered by Wild Mountains they are inspired and motivated to make personal and behavioral changes which promotes the sustainability of the natural environment over which they have stewardship. Many people tell us that they remember their experience at Wild Mountains as a turning point in their thinking.

You are invited to to join our volunteer’s weekend with fellow volunteers from Australia and even the like-minded volunteers from different countries. We have a bunch of projects on the go we would love your help with. No previous skills required just your enthusiasm. We try to cater for everyone interests and abilities.
