You don’t need to be a wildlife expert to be a Wildlife Watch group Leader or a Helper - you just need to be enthusiastic, concerned about the environment and enjoy working with young people.

Training and registration:

Volunteers will be fully trained and support and guidance from local and national Wildlife Trust staff. Volunteers must supply two referees, undergo an enhanced Criminal Records Bureau check and take part in an informal interview. Leaders must be 18 years or over; helpers must be 16 years or over.
