Holme Dunes Volunteer Beach Warden

We are looking for volunteer beach wardens to help protect, monitor and educate about the vulnerable beach nesting birds that nest here on Holme Dunes and it’s neighbouring beaches during their spring/summer breeding season (April-September). Beach nesting birds like Ringed Plover, Little Tern and Oystercatcher are vulnerable to disturbance by people and dogs during their nesting season and so it will be your job to educate people from all walks of life about these species and how and why we want to protect them. This role will involve patrolling the beach, talking to members of the public, recording behaviour and nesting activity and any reactions to disturbance.

This role would suit someone with a passion for wildlife and conservation, particularly benefitting those that wish to enter the conservation sector. The role will require you to be able to communicate with people from all walks of life in a friendly and diplomatic manner, you will need a willingness to learn and everything else will be provided through training and ongoing support. This role does not necessarily require you to have background knowledge of the birds and their behaviours as training will be provided.
