Volunteering on Pomona Island

The Trust is a community-led charitable trust that has a strong reliance on volunteers to restore Pomona and Rona Islands.

How do I get involved?
Working bees on Pomona and Rona Islands are organised on a regular basis. We have a volunteer e-mail list so if you are interested in helping us on the islands please e-mail us at pomona.island@ihug.co.nz. Please note that working bees are often organised at short notice to take advantage of a good weather forecast.

Who can volunteer?
Almost anyone can volunteer to help us on Pomona and Rona Islands provided that you are aged 16 or over. A good level of fitness is however required as the terrain is rough and there are steep sections on the islands. The work is often very physical but also rewarding.

Health and Safety
The health and safety of our volunteers is important to the Trust. A list of essential gear is provided to volunteers before each working bee. All volunteers are provided with a safety briefing and given clear instructions on the task that they are required to undertake. Each group of volunteers is equipped with a radio in the event of any emergencies.
 
Long Term Volunteer Opportunities
The Trust does NOT offer long term volunteer opportunities as all of our work takes place on single days throughout the year.
