There are lots of different ways you can volunteer with us and help protect wild plants and fungi. There’s something for everyone, and we welcome volunteers in a wide variety of roles across the UK. Whether it’s getting stuck into practical conservation work, data entry, research, botanical survey, or even campaigning and advocacy work. We simply couldn’t do as much vital work for wild plants and fungi without our volunteers.
When you join our friendly network of volunteers, you will be able to use skills you already have as well as developing new ones. You will be supported by a dedicated volunteer manager who will ensure you have a full induction and welcome to your volunteering, as well as access to a range of training.
See what our volunteers have been up to and read our latest articles, features and stories all about volunteering. You can also find opportunities to get involved with us on our volunteering news page.
Are you aged between 16 – 25, based in one of the Species on the Edge project areas, and passionate about your local wildlife? If so, this is an opportunity for you! The Species on the Edge Youth Panel is now open for applications.
