Volunteer with Living Seas Wales
If you like being beside the seaside why not volunteer with Living Seas Wales!
Once you've registered by following the registration link and confirmed with our Volunteer Officer, you can help support our year-round activities ranging from rock pool rambles to roadshow events, as well as monitoring and surveying. It’s a great way to learn about and explore the coastline of North Wales with like-minded people.
