Work For Us|

Join Team Wild and run, walk or skydive for wildlife

Whether you love running, walking, cycling or swimming, whatever you choose to do, join Team Wild and do it for wildlife!

We’re looking for supporters to challenge themselves whilst getting sponsored in the following events. It costs us almost £2,000 a day to manage all of our reserves, so every penny you raise will really help.


Skydive for wildlife

Come and fly like a falcon whilst raising money for Somerset Wildlife Trust.

On Saturday 28th September 2019, we’re looking for people to join our team of daring supporters taking to the skies to skydive from the highest altitude possible! 




Run for wildlife at the Virgin London Marathon 2020

Run for Wildlife by taking on one of the world's most famous marathons on Sunday 26th April 2020.  

We have one guaranteed place in the Virgin Money London Marathon 2020 and we're looking for someone to lace up their running shoes and raise money in aid of Somerset Wildlife Trust.
