  • Are you interested in wildlife?
  • Do you like to get out in bush settings?
  • Do you like the outdoor life?
  • Do you like contributing to important work?


Then you are just the person to be a Wombats SA wildlife reserve volunteer!

Moorunde Wildlife Reserve near Blanchetown is one of 6 wildlife reserves managed by the Wombats SA/Natural History Society of South Australia Inc  containing habitat for locally indigenous species such as the southern hairy-nosed wombat (on four of the reserves near Blanchetown) and the bare-nosed wombat on Cullen Reserve at Robe, plus a wide variety of other animals and plants.

We constantly need help with maintenance and improvement to our reserves and their facilities. Our rangers take turns each week to monitor fences and tracks, etc and report issues, plus there are routine annual tasks to be done, etc. Volunteer weekends are an opportunity for members and volunteers to see what is happening on the reserves and to see if they would like to be involved with their care.

Visitors are welcome and encouraged to register to come along on join in our Volunteer Weekends. Participating in our volunteer activities gives you a chance to also see and experience the natural beauty of these places plus experience the animals and plants in their natural setting.

These are held at  Moorunde Wildlife Reserve the second weekend of every month unless the Adelaide Temperature exceeds 30C. We also hold two Volunteer Weekends each year at Cullen Reserve near Robe.

Come for one day (or come both days) and bring your lunch or come for the weekend and camp (BYO).. Please Contact Head Ranger Adrian Jones in advance via info@wombatssa.org.au.

For more information see our website  and especially the Volunteers  page.

Can’t get there by yourself? Make contact and a member or other volunteer may be able to provide transport.
Got a group? Come up together or hire a mini-bus for extra travelling fun!

We look forward to meeting you!

This is your chance to make a difference and help us look after a wonderful bit of wild South Australia!
