Volunteer

When you join Kent Wildlife Trust as a volunteer, you will be joining forces with over 800 like-minded people, all contributing invaluable skills and experience to ensure that we can continue our work as the county’s champion for all things wildlife.

And did we mention you’re likely to have great fun?

By volunteering with us, you will gain:

  • Useful skills and experience
  • Increased knowledge of wildlife conservation
  • New friends with similar interests
  • Good exercise (at least for some tasks!)
  • A sense of achievement
  • The satisfaction of knowing you are helping Kent's wildlife

We can’t do it without you. Our volunteers are an essential part of our team. Where appropriate, we offer training and development to help you to help us. And as your experience grows, so can we, which is great news for the thing which brings us all together – our wildlife.

Think volunteering might be for you? Have a look at the options on the menu above.

Listen to some of our volunteers at Blean talking about their experiences.
