Dorset Wildlife Trust is appealing for local people aged 18 and over to join our keen volunteers at their visitor centres at Kimmeridge Bay, Chesil Beach and Kingcombe, near Maiden Newton. Local people who would like to do something valuable for nature and have time to offer on a regular basis are invited to take part. No expertise is required as all volunteers will be provided with free training to equip them with the basic knowledge and skills necessary.
Julie Hatcher, Wild Seas Centre Officer, said,
“We have an amazing team of volunteers across all our visitor centres with a wide range of backgrounds and ages. What they all have in common is a passion for wildlife and a desire to help ensure its wellbeing. With the current climate and ecological crises and increasing pressures from human activities, wildlife on land and in the sea is under threat, our conservation work has never been more important. All the visitor centres sit in stunning locations and off er multiple opportunities for volunteers to do something both enjoyable and worthwhile”
“Our aim is to enable visitors to leave our centres feeling empowered to make simple changes in their everyday lives that benefit the planet and help tackle the environmental issues of our day.”
Open sessions will be held in January and February at all three visitor centres. This will offer the opportunity to meet the staff and volunteers to find out more about what we do.
A limited number of vacancies are available, so potential recruits are asked to contact the relevant visitor centre to register their interest.
