Do you live in the south or west Wales area? Are you interested in marine conservation or the heritage/history of the Welsh coast? We’re looking for passionate volunteers to join our Living Seas team and to help us to help our seas.
“We need an army of people who love the sea and understand that there is no life without water” – Jacques Yves Cousteau
Volunteering is a fantastic opportunity for you to make a positive contribution to marine conservation, meet new people who share your interests and experience Wales’ amazing marine life!
Living Seas Wales Volunteers can take part in or organise research and outreach activities in their local area, attend events including the Living Seas Live! Roadshow (set locations) or volunteer from home.
Volunteer activities include –
- Conducting marine and coastal surveys
- Helping with community outreach events e.g. talks, rock pooling and wildlife walks
- Collecting, archiving and digitising historical records relating to welsh coastal/marine wildlife
- Engaging with and inspiring the public through our Living Seas Live! Roadshow
- Taking part in marine advocacy campaigns and much more
Volunteers living locally to New Quay can be based at the Cardigan Bay Marine Wildlife Centre, and can also help to run our busy visitor centre (March-Nov).
YOU DON’T NEED A BACKGROUND IN SCIENCE TO BECOME INVOLVED! Full training and support will be provided by our living seas staff and existing volunteers.
Interested? We’re hosting a volunteer taster session on Saturday 22nd September, 10:30am-1pm at our centre in New Quay. Come along to find out how you can become involved and to try out a mini dolphin watch and beach clean.
For more information and to book a place on the taster session please contact Laura on firstname.lastname@example.org or 01545 560224.
