Volunteer for your local group
From organising walks and talks to developing local biodiversity action plans, our local groups are very active in their corners of London.
Always keen to recruit new volunteers, your local group would love to hear from you.
Vocational volunteering (internships)
London Wildlife Trust has vocational placements (or internships) in a range of departments. We feel that properly planned and managed volunteer roles are a useful way of getting experience that may help to gain employment. Vocational placements have a clear role description, are part time – normally three days a week for three to six months - and we reimburse travel and other out-of-pocket expenses. Currently available roles are listed below.
From bat walks and butterfly spotting to arts, crafts and bushcraft, London Wildlife Trust organises hundreds of events across London, most of them free. Search our events listings to find out what's going on near you.
Employee volunteering with London Wildlife Trust is a fantastic way to contribute to London's wildlife and local communities.
By working with our conservation teams, you and your colleagues will offer much needed support while discovering the local habitat and species and learning some conservation skills along the way.
Please note there is a charge for organising workdays for corporate groups.
