Seven staff members from Vocus Communications’ Sydney office became acquainted with more than just shovels and spades when they spent a day of corporate environmental volunteering at Middle Head Sydney Harbour National Park. Run by the Foundation for National Parks & Wildlife, the volunteering day started with an introduction to some local fauna including snakes and a junior croc,as well as an information session about the significance of native flora,and the importance of biodiversity and restoring native habitats for our unique animals.
After the briefing volunteers kicked off the activities for the day which included day included weeding, planting native seedlings and other bush regeneration activities. After lunch, volunteers then learnt about the history of the park and took a tour of the underground tunnels including the sandstone gun pits and the ‘Tiger Cages’.
“This was a fantastic day and a good learning experience about the flora, fauna and history of the area. It was also a great opportunity to give some love back to our beautiful environment and to help thelovely team of people with the massive job of looking after our beautiful National Parks for all to enjoy.” - Rob from Vocus
