Phillip Island Nature Parks Volunteer Opportunities


Churchill Island - Victorian Collections

CHURCHILL ISLAND – VICTORIAN COLLECTIONS 

How does the role help protect nature for wildlife?

First walked by the Boonwurrung/Bunurong, Churchill Island now holds an important place in the history of European settlement in Victoria. As well as being an operational farm, the island is entirely predator free which makes it a haven for key wildlife species. 

What will I be doing?

  • We will send you a list of registration numbers and descriptions for items we have entered into the Victorian Collections. You will choose an item from the list, perform internet/database research or write from your own knowledge of that specific item, and write approximately 100 words explaining what it is, how it is used, why it is used, and anything else that might be relevant. Simple references will be included at the end of each piece. This writing will then be uploaded onto the cataloguing website and provide depth and colour to the entries. This will also go into our records and be accessible for future researchers.

    Sam Happe, Churchill Island Curator, will provide guidance and can be contacted throughout for support and information.
