Ulster Wildlife was founded by volunteers in 1978 and volunteering has been essential to the organisation ever since.

What can you do for nature?

Volunteering with us is a great way to make a difference to nature on your doorstep. 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.

No matter what you decide to do, you’ll meet new people, learn new skills, have lots of fun and help to secure a healthy future for wildlife across Northern Ireland.

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! Read our volunteer case studies to find out more. 

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 future for wildlife across Northern Ireland. Find out what volunteering opportunities are currently available.
