Getting to the Islands

Volunteering with us

Volunteering with Project Island Song is a great way to get out and about in the bay and explore many of the islands of Ipipiri. We run regular volunteer programmes as well as one-off working bees throughout the year. Free boat transport to the islands is provided for our volunteers, with pick up points in Paihia, Russell and Rāwhiti.

Head to our Volunteer page to find out more and get involved.
