The success of Friends of Flora is thanks to a small group of active volunteers who are involved in monthly trapping, setting up new lines and in associated project activities. Much of the work is off track and requires a reasonable level of fitness.

Not everyone has the time and fitness to be an active volunteer. Supporters of FoF are kept informed with a Newsletter which will tell you of our projects, and keep you in touch.

From time to time we need help from our friends, so watch for the call to action!
