Our plans for the Island involve the use of skilled and unskilled volunteers where possible to attain our stated aims and objectives. We need volunteers young and old, able-bodied or disabled for a multitude of tasks large and small i.e. fundraising, clearing and rebuilding paths, bird watching, tree planting, invasive species removal, volunteer warden and general conservation work.

If you are interested in any of these tasks above and wish to join us in this project as a volunteer click here to download an application form to become a member or click here to email us. We are looking for volunteers to join us in a hands on approach. Skilled or unskilled are welcome. New skills can be learnt on this project.
