Green not mean volunteering project 

Kiwi Experience is excited to be teaming up with Conservation Volunteers a not-for-profit organisation that recruits and manages teams of volunteers to work on environmental and wildlife conservation projects on our Green Not Mean volunteer pass.​

Where are the projects located?
A 4 or 6 day volunteering experience on a Conservation Volunteers project will have you helping out with a variety of tasks in a stunning location, including tree planting, seed collection and removal of weeds to create an ecological corridor spanning the mountains to the sea.

What does my pass include?
The projects are located in Punakaiki on the West Coast of the South Island of New Zealand. Perched on the edge of the Southern Alps, Punakaiki encompasses spectacular limestone landscapes, river gorges, caves, coastal and inland walks and the world renowned Pancake Rocks and blowholes. The coastline is the natural habitat of the Little Blue Penguin and the only nesting ground of the Westland Black Petrel. The forests bear nikau palms and rata trees that are hundreds of years old.

Your Green Not Mean pack includes transfers from the Punkaiki Visitor Centre, either 3 or 5 nights accommodation in the hostel-style accommodation at the project, and all meals. You will be guided by the expertise of an enthusiastic Conservation Volunteers Team Leader during the project and will receive a certificate of participation at the end of the project.

Conservation Volunteers are a non-profit a organisation who recruit and manage teams of volunteers from Australia, New Zealand and around the world to work on important environmental and wildlife conservation project and this is your chance to get involved!
