Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust (LWT)
I’ve had an interest in wildlife and birds in particular all my life. Volunteering for the trust allows me to spend as much time as I wish supporting the organisation across it’s environmental, conservation and educational ambitions. One day I can be helping out in the nature centre meeting visitors, another I can be out on the reserve as a ranger or supporting the shorebird warden protecting the nesting ringed plovers and little terns.
LWT manages almost 100 different sites across Lincolnshire including Gibraltar Point where I spend my time. Some 1300 people volunteer, without whom the trust would be unable to carry out it’s work which not only supports nature but provides so much pleasure to hundreds of thousands of visitors every year.
HOW WOULD YOU ENCOURAGE OTHERS TO GET INVOLVED IN THEIR COMMUNITY?
