We are very excited to launch our most exciting conservation volunteering project to date in Dimension Data Australia.
Lucky groups of would-be greenies will volunteer over the year with our partner Conservation Volunteers Australia (CVA) to manage their bush regeneration programs on Dimension Data (DD) Island – also known as Billong-olola or Clark Island, pictured below.
Our indefatigable NSW State Manager, Pete Murray, is leading the NSW leadership team on the first foray and while spending a day out on our beautiful harbour is pretty spectacular, there will be no beach volleyball on this outing.
Our dedicated volunteers will be conducting extensive vegetation rehabilitation (that’s a slightly more interesting way of saying ‘weeding’). This means native flora can flourish and support habitat for a number of native fauna species such as the Australian magpie, the laughing Kookaburra and the Pied Currawang among others.
We have to watch out for those introduced species but happily some imports are most welcome – like Colin Curtis! We are very lucky to have our very own Global Director of Sustainability quite literally gracing our shores and joining us on this visit to DD Island.
We look forward to sharing more photos on the positive impact our environmental volunteers have at DD Island over the coming months .
