Green Guardians

Voluntourism in Tasmania

Forward thinking eco-conscious travellers are being invited by the Tasmania Parks and Wildlife Service to participate in the Green Guardians program. 

Green Guardians provides sustainable experiences in Tasmania’s national parks and reserves for tourists on guided trips.  This is a joint program with Tasmanian tourism operators and Tourism Tasmania

Travellers to Tasmania participate in a conservation project as part of a Green Guardians’ guided tour.  Projects undertaken as a Green Guardian are chosen by Parks and Wildlife Service rangers to make a tangible difference to the conservation work carried out in the reserve. 

Each project is undertaken as a small proportion of the overall tour.  As an example a Green Guardian project might take approximately one to two hours of a 4 day trip.

Keep nature at the top of your mind when booking your next adventure by choosing to be a Green Guardian with a participating tourism operator.
