What we're looking for
We are looking for an enthusiastic all-round residential volunteer to help us with a very varied programme of habitat management, survey and monitoring, estate work, public affairs and livestock management. Ynys-Hir is sited on the southern side of the Dyfi estuary, a UNESCO Biosphere reserve. The reserve is stunningly beautiful and supports a unique mix of habitats, ranging from upland heath, ffridd and western oak woodlands to estuarine bogs, reed-bed, lowland wet grassland, and the saltmarshes of the Dyfi. It is one of the most important sites for breeding lapwing in Wales. Other key species include pied flycatcher, redstart, wood warbler, tree pipit and lesser spotted woodpecker, otter, dormouse, several nationally important invertebrates, and 10 species of bat.
