Sutherland Bushcare a Strong Achiever in Annual Volunteerism Survey

Sutherland Shire Bushcare logged over 24,000 hours and nearly 900 regular members in 2012-2013. These totals far outnumber other Bushcare organisational numbers for the Sydney Metropolitan area. This is according to the Hawkesbury-Nepean Catchment Management Authority (HNCMA) Environmental Volunteering Survey.

The Survey valued the work of 27,971 environmental volunteers in 61 Sydney-based bush regeneration organisations at $5.96 million. The number of environmental volunteers has increased 54% from 2009 to 2012. Committed volunteers contributed 163,250 hours in 2012.
