Sustrans wildlife volunteers help us to keep a record of nature on their local route.
And they use their conservation skills to encourage and look after our furry and feathered friends.
Our wildlife volunteers look after our greenways on the National Cycle Network.
They monitor wildlife, plant and flower growth. And they protect animals and insects that call the Network home.
As restrictions begin to ease Sustrans will start to support small group volunteering activities on a case by case approach.
With the ‘stay at home’ message lifted, we continue to support our volunteers to carry small actions on the National Cycle Network.
Due to the Coronavirus outbreak, we've placed some restrictions on larger group volunteering activities to ensure the safety of our volunteers.
You are very welcome to apply for any of our current volunteering opportunities.
However, there may be a delay in processing your application. And you may not be able to get started properly in your role until regular volunteering starts back up.
There are loads of great benefits to wildlife volunteering with Sustrans.
If you see a bird, plant, insect or animal that you can identify on the National Cycle Network, you can add it to a brilliant website we use to help record wildlife spotted in the UK.
Go to the iRecord website and enter what you saw, where, and when you saw it.
It takes just a few minutes to add it to the site. The records are verified by experts and help towards conservation research.
Join us for a task day or a group wildlife monitoring session.
