Skomer volunteer bookings – please do not phone on 30 September as previously indicated!
The Trust will be operating a more formal recruitment and selection process for Skomer volunteering opportunities. As we have been heavily over-subscribed in recent years the decision has been made to allocate spaces on the strengths of people’s applications rather than on a first come first served basis, as this will allow the wardens and the Trust to manage the island most effectively for the benefit of both wildlife and visitors. As well as people’s practical and conservation skills the wardens will also take into account knowledge of the island and, where multiple applications are equal in merit, membership of the Wildlife Trust of South & West Wales will continue to provide priority to places.
A new application form will be placed on the website very shortly and the closing date is likely to be 31 October 2013 for the first round of applications but please check the website for up to date information.
Skomer overnight accommodation – bookings for Trust members start Monday 7 October.
Skokholm overnight accommodation – bookings for Trust members start Monday 14 October.
Non members can book for both islands from Monday 21 October.
