If you would like to do something to help protect your local wildlife, we would love to hear from you!
Whether you like working indoors or out, there are lots of different volunteering opportunities available with North Wales Wildlife Trust.
The first step to volunteering is to register by completing our online form - we'll then be in touch to have a chat about the type of volunteering you would like to do.
As well as helping local wildlife, you can meet new people; keep fit; learn new skills; share your own experiences; increase your knowledge of wildlife conservation and of course, enjoy yourself! Whether you can spare a whole day or a few hours, the time you give makes a huge difference. Why not make a start right now?!
If you like working outdoors, or would like to give it a try, why not come along to one of our conservation work parties? These take place on our nature reserves every week throughout the year.
Other ways to volunteer
We manage two shops which raise essential funds for the Wildlife Trust every year. One is based on the Great Orme in Llandudno and the other at Breakwater Country Park in Holyhead. They are open 7 days a week from Easter until the end of October. If you would like to make a difference and meet new people, why not join one of our teams of friendly and committed shop volunteers?
Wildlife gardening volunteering
Anna & Iwan, our Education & Community Officers, work with local schools and community groups on wildlife gardening projects throughout North Wales. This may involve working with pupils to make their school grounds more wildlife-friendly or building a willow-dome in a local play area ... or many other things! These volunteering opportunities are more ad hoc but if you would like to get involved please register as a volunteer and we’ll get in touch when an opportunity arises in your local area.
Volunteering with your local group
Wherever you live in North Wales, there will be a North Wales Wildlife Trust Branch near you. These are run by volunteers who help to raise the profile of the Wildlife Trust in their local communities. They organise lots of wildlife-themed events and activities all throughout the year including guided walks, family fun days and talks by local experts. Why not go along to one of their meetings and get more involved? You’ll connect with local people who share a common interest in wildlife. Whether you’re a face-painter or a cake-baker, you may be just what your local Branch is looking for!
