In the lead up to World Environment Day, here's a chance to get involved in restoration in the Hauraki Gulf. Whether you're an individual or part of a organisation looking for a team building day out in the Gulf, we'd be grateful for your help. Volunteers get 40% off the return ferry ticket to Rotoroa Island, but places are limited.

How to book:
360 Discovery Cruises are providing special discounted ferry fares for volunteers (only $32.20 return for adults). Numbers are limited to 20, so be quick and book online: select Auckland to Rotoroa return, and enter 360111 as a promotion code to get your special ferry fare, or call 360 Discovery on 0800 360 3472. Make sure you mention you are heading to the island for the volunteer day to get the discounted rate.

What to bring:
Your lunch and plenty of water to drink; sturdy footwear (tramping boots or good grip sand shoes - no open toe shoes); several layers of clothes and wet weather gear; gardening gloves if you have them. Please bring any medication if you need it as there are no pharmacy supplies on the island (especially if you are an allergy or hay fever sufferer as you will be working among bush).

What we’ll provide:
Rubbish Bags, tea, coffee and water; supervisors with plenty of interesting stories and good humour!

Plan for the day
8:45am: Volunteers depart on the 360 Discovery Cruise;
