Volunteer monitoring marsh fritillary webs
Volunteers first started with Ulster Wildlife in 1978 and volunteering has been essential to the organisation ever since.
What can you do for nature?
Volunteering with Ulster Wildlife is a great way to make a difference in local nature conservation. Lots of people are already doing their bit, volunteering on nature reserves, at events, in the office – there are lots of other ways that you can contribute your time and skills.
Volunteering with Ulster Wildlife not only helps us to get much more valuable work done, but it gives volunteers the opportunity to gain experience, meet new people, learn new skills and have some fun!
Current Volunteering Opportunities
Whether you want to get stuck in on our nature reserves, support our education work, work with us at public events or help out in our office, we’ll find something to suit you. No matter what you decide to do, you’ll meet new people, learn new skills, have lots of fun and help secure a healthy environment for wildlife across Northern Ireland. Find out what volunteering opportunities are currently available.
If you would like further general information about volunteering with Ulster Wildlife see our Volunteering FAQs. And remember, if one of these specific opportunities doesn’t suit you but you think that you have skills to offer us then please get in touch and tell us about your interests/skills.
Hayley Stokes - Gaining experience in all aspects of conservation work
Our volunteers come from all walks and stages of life - European Voluntary Service volunteers, university placement students, corporate and social groups of volunteers -and are involved in all aspects of our work.
Hayley, for example, is a recent graduate who has been volunteering with us for nearly a year. In that time she has contributed to our work on the nature reserves, in the office (supporting a fundraising campaign and helping with the set up of this website!) - and in our campaigning work.
Hayley says: "I decided to volunteer with Ulster Wildlife to get experience and because this is a worthy cause. By volunteering with Ulster Wildlife I am hoping to get experience beyond conservation which is what I've learned about on my course; and experience of being in the workplace. I would advise anybody interested in volunteering to just do it! Don't be afraid of not knowing - you'll learn on the way. "
