Become a Wild Volunteer with Wild About Jersey

What we do

Wild About Jersey aims to get people outdoors, into nature, meeting new people and learning more about the natural world.

We want to protect and support our natural environment by:

  • helping people change their behaviour
  • encouraging islanders to become environmental volunteers
  • monitoring Jersey’s wildlife using volunteers
  • connecting organisations so we can work together
  • organising events to showcase

We share information about volunteering opportunities and local conservation efforts you can get involved in.

Our aim is to inspire you and train you to help us in gathering vital information for protecting and improving our environment. This can include things such as:

  • monitoring bats
  • counting toads
  • surveying butterfly species 

How to become a Wild Volunteer

If you love nature, wildlife, being outdoors and want to help us to protect our natural environment you should sign up to become a volunteer.

It's really easy to do, you don't need previous experience and we provide training where it's needed.

Just email us and we'll add you to our mailing list so we can send you updates about projects you can get involved in.
