The CBMWC relies on a team of dedicated Living Seas Volunteers who help us to collect data on the marine wildlife of Cardigan Bay, run our visitor centre and inspire the public through community engagement events. We welcome people from all ages and backgrounds as enthusiasm and interest in our work is just as valued as experience, since full training is provided. Without the continued hard work and support from dedicated volunteers, our vital research and engagement work would not be possible.
The volunteer programme at CBMWC has received national recognition after achieving the Investing in Volunteers Award (IiV), the UK’s quality standard for volunteer management, in January 2017. The award demonstrates that we provide a fantastic volunteer experience!

Many thanks to our friends at AMP (Aberystwyth Media Productions) for putting this together for us.
Discovering Our Coasts Project
The Discovering Our Coasts Project aims to provide local young people (aged 14-25) with the opportunity to discover the Ceredigion coast and to develop skills through a range of engagement events and volunteering at CBMWC.
The volunteering opportunities available to young people will include a range of activities from land and boat based marine mammal surveys to inspiring people through the CBMWC visitor centre, keeping our beaches litter free and assisting with engagement events. The skills and experience gained through volunteering will help to boost your CV, with past volunteers going on to further education or into employment.
