Wildlife Volunteering

Wildlife volunteering includes a wide range of different activities including practical work, such as hedge-laying, coppicing or fencing; wildlife surveying and monitoring; maintaining biodiversity records; or writing or designing information boards and leaflets, for example. Devon is the ideal place to get involved in wildlife and conservation volunteering and there are many opportunities to get involved. Organisations such as Devon Wildlife Trust, the National Trust, the RSPB, the Forestry Commission, South West Lakes Trust, District and County Councils and Dartmoor and Exmoor National Parks, amongst many others, regularly welcome new volunteers. Alternatively, contact Volunteer Devon, your local Council for Voluntary Service or your local Conservation Volunteers group, who will put you in touch with local volunteering opportunities.
