Become a Fishcare Volunteer

Our dedicated group of volunteers have made it their mission to promote responsible recreational fishing and safeguard our precious aquatic environments. Joining their ranks is not only a rewarding experience, but also a chance to make a tangible difference in the conservation of our aquatic heritage.

Volunteering with Fishcare Victoria provides a unique opportunity to educate fellow anglers about the principles of responsible fishing. Through workshops, outreach events, and educational materials, volunteers equip others with the knowledge and skills to engage in sustainable fishing practices, ensuring the long-term health of our aquatic ecosystems.

Responsible fishing practices play a crucial role in maintaining biodiversity in our waterways. Fishcare volunteers actively promote catch-and-release techniques, encourage adherence to size and bag limits, and advocate for the protection of sensitive habitats. By doing so, they contribute directly to the conservation of diverse fish species and their delicate ecosystems.

Volunteering with Fishcare Victoria is about more than just spreading knowledge; it’s about instilling a sense of responsibility and stewardship in anglers. By actively engaging with the fishing community, volunteers inspire a conservation ethic that extends beyond the water’s edge. This ethic becomes a guiding principle in everyday life, influencing decisions that positively impact our environment.

Fishcare volunteers form a tight-knit community bound by a shared passion for responsible fishing and environmental stewardship. The camaraderie that arises from working towards a common goal fosters a sense of belonging and purpose. This sense of community extends to fellow anglers, creating a network of individuals committed to the well-being of our aquatic environments.

Volunteering with Fishcare Victoria offers opportunities for personal development and skill-building. Volunteers gain expertise in fisheries management, conservation techniques, and effective communication. These skills not only serve the mission of Fishcare but also empower individuals in various aspects of their lives.

Spending time on the water and actively participating in the conservation of aquatic environments deepens one’s connection with nature. Volunteers witness firsthand the beauty and fragility of these ecosystems, fostering a profound appreciation for the natural world. This connection serves as a powerful motivator to continue working towards their preservation.

Through their actions, Fishcare volunteers serve as role models for future generations of anglers. They demonstrate that it’s possible to enjoy recreational fishing while also being conscientious stewards of the environment. This legacy of responsible fishing practices ensures that our aquatic ecosystems will be cherished and protected for years to come.

Volunteering with Fishcare Victoria is a rewarding and fun way to give back. You don’t have to be an avid angler or even have any fishing skills. We share what we know and show you the ropes! Our volunteers do more than just fish, they empower individuals to be active participants in the conservation of our aquatic environments, leaving a lasting impact on both the natural world and the wider community.
