In addition to our management team, our organisation utilises highly skilled volunteers (Qualifications in Executive and Program Management, Teaching, Leadership, Conservation, Youth Work and Counselling) for the conduct of our programs. All have current Child Safety (Blue) Cards, and our senior program staff have current Senior First Aid Qualifications.
