2017 Australasian Bird Fair & Wildlife Expo - 3-5 November

 

This event is bigger and better than ever, which means more volunteers are needed! All entry fees (after costs are met) are committed to bird conservation projects and threatened species in the Australia and Pacific region, to include seabirds and migratory shorebirds that visit our shores every year. Children accompanied by parents enter the event free of charge as do our volunteers who help us during the event with so many of the tasks involved in running such an event.

If you are happy to help us out for half a day or more (timing can be split) you will have free access to the fair over the whole three days. You will also be issued with a free T shirt and name tag to identify you as a volunteer. If you are interested in helping out let us know by contacting us to learn more about some of the tasks we have for volunteers at http://admin@birdfair.com.au or learn more about the event by visiting the website at http://www.birdfair.com.au
