The Cardigan Bay Marine Wildlife Centre (CBMWC)
centre/> is looking for dedicated and enthusiastic volunteers to join our
Living Seas Team for the 2020 research season, to help with our marine
mammal research and community engagement work.
The Cardigan Bay Marine Wildlife Centre is the Living Seas wing of The
Wildlife Trust of South and West Wales <http://www.welshwildlife.org/> .
Since 1996 we have been dedicated to raising awareness of the local marine
environment through research and education. Using land and boat based
surveys, photo-identification and acoustic studies we collect data on marine
megafauna, focusing on bottlenose dolphins, harbour porpoises and Atlantic
grey seals in the Cardigan Bay Special Area of Conservation (SAC) and the
wider Irish Sea. We operate a busy visitor centre (average 17,000 visitors
per year) and also provide marine educational activities for families,
school and groups.
Volunteering with CBMWC is a unique opportunity for you to carry out marine
mammal research and to help inspire the public through our visitor centre
and community engagement events. You'll learn about the marine species of
Cardigan Bay and gain experience in field work, processing data,
environmental education, community engagement and much more!
The volunteer programme at CBMWC has received national recognition after
achieving the Investing in Volunteers Award (IiV), the UK's quality standard
for volunteer management. We provide a fantastic volunteer experience!
