There are lots of ways to help wildlife, whatever your age. Head over to the youth zone for information on things you can do yourself, and any activities in your area.
Family conservation days
If you want to get out onto our parks and green spaces, get your hands dirty and improve our sites, Wildlife in the city holds family conservation tasks; all ages are welcome, accompanied by an adult. Check out the events page to see the next family conservation task near you.
Wildlife in the City Placement Scheme
Wildlife in the city has a volunteer scheme really suitable for 16 -20 year olds, who live in the city. If you want to volunteer for one day a week or so, for 20 weeks, get in touch and we can design a wildlife placement that suits you. In this placement scheme, you can mix and match different aspects, depending on what times you can do and what we are doing.
Typical volunteer work includes:
Habitat management (working on our nature reserves, physically improving the site for wildlife)
Surveying wildlife species on sites: learning how to identify lots of different plants and animals.
Marketing and design: updating the website, making posters or factsheets for the project.
Helping in the office: updating our spreadsheets, helping with paperwork, organising all our resources, or researching wildlife and communities.
Taking, creating or compiling photos and videos of urban wildlife and nature reserves
We will discuss what work you will take on when we first meet you, and you will be supervised closely by a member of the Wildlife in the City team.
To find out more, get in touch with the Wildlife in the City team by email.
