Conservation Projects

Conservation Volunteers program

Conservation Volunteers Australia and the Port Arthur Historic Sites Management Authority (PAHSMA) have been partnering with the community and volunteers to help conserve the Coal Mines Historic Site since 2013.

Project coordinator John Hueston says that a number of necessary activities have been identified to conserve the site whilst maintaining its unique appeal.

“These include vegetation management, fuel load reduction, coastal protection, walking track maintenance, visitor surveys and flora and fauna monitoring and survey including of the local rabbit population.”

Anyone interested in joining the volunteers should send a message for John via the Coal Mines Facebook Page, which also has regular updates on the program’s activities and other details relevant to the Site.
