Wildlife Monitoring Volunteers: opportunities

Enjoy fenland wildlife and the outdoors? Keen to get involved with conservation?

In working to manage flood defence and water level management across a large part of Cambridgeshire, the Middle Level Commissioners have opportunities for volunteers to support their species conservation work by helping monitor wildlife across the fens.

With such a large area to cover, a few extra pairs of eyes and ears would be a great help from time to time. Volunteers will be trained in aspects of wildlife ID such as spotting signs of water voles and otters, farmland birds and invasive ditch plants. With luck, there will be opportunities to see some amazing fenland wildlife at close quarters.

Monitoring sessions are an important way of supporting our conservation work and will run throughout the year, there is no minimum commitment and all surveying/safety equipment will be provided. All that is required is an interest in wildlife and an enthusiastic outlook.
