Volunteer Wildlife Watch Leader for Taunton Deane

We are seeking enthusiastic people with a love of wildlife and a passion for working with young people to lead our Taunton Deane Watch Group.

Do you have:

  • An enthusiasm for wildlife and the natural world
  • An enthusiasm for working with young people and ability to relate to young people
  • Organisation skills which allow them to plan well managed and safe sessions
  • The ability to work well with other adults and share tasks as a team
  • A sense of fun

If so then we want to hear from you!

Wildlife Watch is the junior branch of The Wildlife Trusts, and is the UK's leading club for young environmentalists. Local Watch groups run a full and varied programme of environmental and wildlife focused activities that are fun, interesting and inspiring. They aim to enthuse young people to take action to protect wildlife and provide them with the knowledge, skills and experience to do so.

Leaders are at the heart of Wildlife Watch groups and play a pivotal role in making sessions fun and memorable. Without them we would not be able to engage with as many young people and children as we do. Volunteer leaders often come from many different backgrounds but are united in their desire to foster awareness and respect for the natural world in young people and ensure they have the opportunities to voice their own opinions, ideas and points of view.
