We have been reintroducing volunteering across the three counties – please see the relevant pages for each county to see which activities are now under way. Numbers are not generally restricted, but all activities will be reviewed to consider any additional risks that Covid-19 may present.
Please bear with us as we work to make sure all our volunteers and staff are able to carry out their work safely. This may mean we have fewer opportunities open at the moment, and that it takes a little longer than usual to get back to you.
We have over 1,000 volunteers helping wildlife
Volunteering with us means joining a network of like-minded people helping to protect wildlife in Cambridgeshire, Bedfordshire and Northamptonshire and ensure a Wilder Future for all of us.
Whether you can spare a few hours or a full day, volunteering is a chance to make a real difference to local wildlife, while learning useful skills, making new friends and increasing your knowledge of wildlife conservation. The time you give makes a huge difference.
If you want to apply to be a volunteer, but you're not sure what the best role would be, you can fill in the application form and return to us by email and when opportunities are available again we will get in touch.

Our Voluntary Officer (VO) placements are aimed at people looking for an in-depth introduction to conservation.
Placements are offered for up to a year in our Reserves and Wider Countryside Teams (and occasionally in other teams). The placements are designed to offer valuable hands-on experience in practical skills and related office work through volunteering in our teams across the three counties.
There is the opportunity to attend any in-house training and externally certificated courses that are essential to your volunteering role, such as first aid, brushcutter and chainsaw operation. A high percentage of VOs have gone on to jobs in the conservation sector.
