  • Description

    Description

    Our voluntary conservation work requires lots of work at our base in Hokitika, West Coast, South Island. That work is primarily in summer, with some short hard-working trips over winter too. The conditions there are very primitive. Certainly no cellphones or internet.

    Over the winter we make use of a time with no field work to recycle old aircraft at a hangar in Hawkes Bay. We take care of equipment, restore our vehicles, organise field work and undertake data entry and analysis on our computers. So there's something for everybody. A great opportunity to learn whilst doing.

    In Hawkes Bay for winter: an aircraft hangar with a shared apartment. Pretty basic facilities. It's a few km from Napier and Hastings. Rural quiet. Will you share a room with someone? A person? We have shared space with your own sofa bed! A Labrador dog? Yes. Most likely. This is Labrador friendly, large two room studio apartment with several beds.
