Saving Tasman Island’s Lighthouse Heritage – support the dedicated volunteers and be rewarded!

A 2005 visit to Tasman Island, one of the most spectacular lighthouse stations in Australia, with the Tasman Peninsula Rotary Club, was the catalyst for the formation of the Wildcare group Friends of Tasman Island.  Over the past 11 years, an impressive range of conservation & maintenance work has been carried out by their volunteers during 25 self-funded working bees.  Each working bee (10 volunteers for 10 days) contributes around 650 volunteer hours. 
Here’s a 2-minute pitch video about the group, their work and their latest project -
Their current campaign: Tasman Island’s Lighthouse Heritage aims to raise $AUS 16,537 to restore the Sunroom and Front Verandah of the historic Lighthouse Keepers Quarters No 2 to its former glory.  Details of the project are on their campaign page.  They have already raised $9, 692 and the campaign ends on Friday 6 October.
