Volunteers Positions 2017

 

Dedicated to conserving Cardigan Bay’s marine wildlife through education and
research

The Wildlife Trust of South and West Wales (WTSWW) is one of six local
Wildlife Trusts in Wales and is part of a wider movement of 47 Wildlife
Trusts which cover the whole of the British Isles. The Wildlife Trusts aim
for an environment rich in wildlife for everyone, striving to secure Living
Seas where marine wildlife thrives, from the depths of the ocean to the
coastal shallows. We recognise this as an inspirational end point where our
environment, society and economy coexist for the benefit of wildlife and
people.

 The Wildlife Trust of South and West Wales is looking for dedicated and
enthusiastic individuals to join our volunteer team at Cardigan Bay Marine
Wildlife Centre (CBMWC). Volunteers will gain valuable experience whilst
helping us to collect data on the marine wildlife of Cardigan Bay, man our
visitor centre and inspire visitors and the public through community
engagement activities. 

 About CBMWC

The Cardigan Bay Marine Wildlife Centre is a non-profit organisation based
in New Quay, west Wales, UK. Since 1996 we have been dedicated to raising
awareness of the local marine environment through education and research.
Using boat-based and land-based surveys, photo-ID and acoustic studies we
monitor bottlenose dolphin, harbour porpoise and Atlantic grey seal
populations in the Cardigan Bay Special Area of Conservation (SAC) and wider
Irish Sea. We also run a busy visitor centre as well as our Discovery Room
which offers marine educational and awareness raising activities for
families, schools and groups. In April 2015 we became part of the Wildlife
Trust of South and West Wales (WTSWW) and we deliver the Trusts Living Seas
programme.

 What You Will Gain 

Volunteering for the Wildlife Trust of South and West Wales at CBMWC is a
fantastic opportunity for you to make a positive contribution to marine
conservation and meet new people who share your interests. You will learn
about the species and habitats in Cardigan Bay, gain experience in field
work, research methods, data processing, public awareness and education
programmes. Past volunteers have gone on to further education, work as
Marine Mammal Observers and to work for other conservation or Government
organisations.
