Marine Wildlife & Conservation Volunteer opportunities

Volunteer positions are available at the Cardigan Bay Marine Wildlife


Volunteering is a great way to develop skills and gain essential experience!


Reliable and enthusiastic people are needed to help with our ongoing
research, education and interpretation programmes concerning the marine
wildlife of Cardigan Bay. We primarily study the bottlenose dolphins through
photo-identification and also monitor harbour porpoise and Atlantic grey
seal populations.


Volunteers play a vital role in the Cardigan Bay Marine Wildlife Centre’s
work. The centre relies on the generous help of volunteers to undertake its
work and greatly appreciates your time. Please note enthusiasm for our work
and the marine environment is as valued as experience, since training is


This is a fantastic opportunity for you to make a positive contribution to
marine wildlife conservation and to gain knowledge and experience of the
species and habitats in Cardigan Bay. It can be a great chance to gain
experience of field work, research methods and public awareness and
education programmes. Gain essential skills for a career in the environment
or conservation such as developing your fundraising, interpersonal and data
processing skills as well as meeting and socialising with people who share
your interests.


If you have any specific skills or experience such as in designing
environmental education programmes, website creation, fundraising, the
media, DIY skills, exhibition, interior or graphic design and would like to
help with project development, please contact us. 


We also welcome undergraduate and postgraduate students who need boat
support and office space to conduct their research projects. Please contact

Volunteering at CBMWC

Desired skills

An interest in wildlife and conservation is most important, along with
reliability, enthusiasm and willingness to work in a conscientious and
responsible manner. As you will be dealing with the public on a daily basis
it is also important that you are fluent in speaking English. We welcome
people with experience working with children, the public or in environmental
interpretation or education, however this is not essential. Indeed this is a
great opportunity to gain skills in these areas. Good verbal and written
communication skills, IT, design and fundraising skills are likewise useful
but not essential.


Time commitment

Volunteers are needed from April until November 2010. We ask for a minimum
commitment of 4 weeks (due to training), ideally volunteers would be able to
commit longer. Volunteers living locally who are available on a part-time
basis are also welcome year round and are greatly appreciated.


Accommodation and expense arrangements

Basic accommodation can be arranged for committed volunteers (approx £55 per
week). Volunteers are responsible for their own food, travel and
accommodation costs.


How to get involved

It’s easy to get involved simply download a simple application form from our
website www.cbmwc.org/volunteer/become_vol.asp, complete it and email it to
volunteer at cbmwc.org with ‘Volunteer application 2010’ in your subject line
