Thanks for responding!

Conservation work is just taking part in a projects to help protect Australia's ecosystems and outback, and its a not for profit organisation for things like tree planting, seed collection, construction and maintenance of walk ways, habitat restoration, heritage restoration, endangered flora and fauna surveys and monitoring, weed control and salinity control and many other.

Ive chosen to do 4 weeks but all meals and accommodation is included and it works out cheaper than renting and working. Its great to meet new people, also looks great on CV.
