A little bit about us 

The Pelorus Conservation Kids originally started as the

Rai Valley Conservation Kids back in 2018 by Antonia O'Donnell. 

Antonia started the conservation club because been a rural town their was not much in the way of clubs or groups for the kids to join. 

She wanted to bring something to the community to help encourage the kids of the Rai Valley/Pelorus area to learn about their environment around them and also to help motivate our kids to get out and about in nature.
