Volunteer

Want to volunteer your time to ensure a safer climate and flourishing FNQ natural environment?

Volunteers have always been the heart and soul of CAFNEC. For over 40 years volunteers have provided us with a huge amount of support for our campaigns and day-to-day activities.

There are many ways you can help advocate for the protection of our unique tropical Far North Queensland environment – from office administration, communications and website development, to projects and events management, and campaigns! 

Get started today by signing up! Our Community Organiser will then give you a call over the next week to organise a chat and a cuppa here at CAFNEC to share with you all our volunteer opportunities and what might fit best for you. 

Anyone who works, volunteers or participates in CAFNEC spaces or events must uphold our Code of Conduct. 

What do you want to do?

Door Knocking

One-on-one conversations are key to shifting people’s hearts and minds. Join our volunteers, every Saturday, going to the doors of residents and having meaningful conversations with about how climate change is affecting their lives. 

We know door knocking can sound intimidating, but we’ve got all the resources to give you confidence to have these important conversations.

Climate Action Now Sign Distribution

All over Queensland, people across the entire political spectrum are putting up bright yellow Climate Action Now signs to demonstrate we want bold action on climate. Help our volunteers hand them out every week at Rusty’s Market on Sunday mornings!

Community Climate Action Group

Come along and meet community members from all over Cairns for our monthly Community Climate Action Group meetins. This is an opportunity for you to meet new people,  learn new skills, and take community-driven, strategic action on climate change.

MangroveWatch & Saltmarsh Monitoring

Join our volunteers and key stakeholders to monitor major estuaries, gathering vital data on the health of our mangroves, and estuary ecostystems. With some areas being recorded for the first time ever!
