Meet Steve, one of our Wild-Path Trainees! 

Thanks to funUntitled design (7)ding from the Heritage Lottery Fund we, along with other South West Wildlife Trusts,  are running a traineeship for two budding conservationists to gain skills in practical reserves management and community engagement. 

Meet Steve Naylor, one of our Wild Path trainees, as he tells us all about what he is getting up to around the county! If you are looking for a career in conservation, or considering applying for a wildlife conservation training course, this will be an especially interesting read and give you a useful insight into what to expect! 


Find out more about the traineeship programme here.

dormouse 3Hello everyone, thanks for coming back and reading this month’s instalment. Can’t believe another month has flown by, and what a fun month it’s been! The start of October saw me doing the first of two 5-day training residentials with the rest of the Wildpaths trainees from the South West. I’m very happy to say that they are all very nice and it was a joy to meet them and Rachel ‘Rabbit’ Janes who is the project co-ordinator for Wildpaths 2018.

Well wonder no more… welcome to what is the inaugural monthly blog that will endeavour to provide a little in-sight into my time as one the Wild Paths Practical Conservation Trainees for Somerset Wildlife Trust. As this is the first blog, I’ll start by introducing myself and explaining exactly what the Wild Paths Traineeship is.
