The Long-term Volunteers will become an integral part of the island team and will be involved in all aspects of the running of the National Nature Reserve.

Giving intro talks
They will be welcoming overnight guests and giving welcome talks to day visitors, conducting various species surveys (including seabird monitoring and seal monitoring in the appropriate seasons), helping to keep the visitor accommodation clean, carrying out general maintenance all over the island and undertaking their own research project whilst on the island.

Seabird Monitoring Volunteer

This position runs from 25th May until 30th June 2016. This is a fantastic opportunity to volunteer on one of Britain’s most important seabird colonies. Skomer has around 23,000 Guillemots, 7,000 Razorbills and 21,000 Puffins. And that’s not to mention the world’s largest colony of Manx Shearwaters, around 316,000 pairs!

This volunteering position will be to help out with our busiest period of the year, which includes helping out with gull nest counts, seabird counts from land and boat and the Manx Shearwater census.
