Name: Paul Olive

Where do you volunteer? Conservation Volunteers Australia

Why do you choose to volunteer? .I volunteer because I enjoy giving back to the community and I work with a good team of people. It is also a great way to meet new people.

What is your favourite thing about volunteering? I really like seeing our beaches clean and all the rubbish picked up. Tree planting is great because in three or four years’ time they will be nice and big and provide habitat for animals.
