Sussex Wildlife Trust appeals for student volunteers

STUDENT Volunteering week runs throughout England from February 20–26 and Sussex Wildlife Trust (SWT) is appealing for help.

The charity relies heavily on volunteers to carry out vital conservation work on its 32 nature reserves. 

In return, student volunteers gain valuable experience and the enjoyment of working within the natural environment. 

Renzo Spano, youth volunteer co-ordinator for SWT said: “If students start volunteering young, enjoy it and see the benefits for wildlife and its habitats, then volunteering can become a lifetime habit.” 

SWT does lots of work with young volunteers from all over Sussex: Wildlife Rangers aged from 12-16 and Youth Rangers aged from 16-25 carry out various conservation tasks on local green spaces.

The aim is to improve these areas for wildlife and people while having fun, learning new skills, gaining experience and enhancing job and other volunteering prospects.
