Thank you for your interest in Weekly volunteering on Skomer!

Without its weekly volunteers, Skomer simply couldn’t operate.

Volunteers play an important part in visitor management and engagement, assisting with morning and afternoon visitor boats and undertaking island patrols. They are also responsible for daily cleaning of the hostel and the compost toilets.

Weekly volunteers also get involved in monitoring, including reptile transects and cetacean surveys.

On days when visitor boats aren’t running, they get stuck in with a variety of island maintenance and habitat management tasks – from painting to scything, from fencing to making and mending.

Skomer Island Weekly Volunteers – applications have now closed for 2022. For any queries please contact Skomer Assistant Warden.



Any queries regarding weekly volunteering may be directed to the same email address.

Diolch yn fawr - thank you!
