What we're looking for
The Peregrine Falcon - fastest animal on the planet, stooping at speeds of up to 200mph, and can be found on every continent on earth (excluding Antarctica)! This is an unmissable opportunity to share your passion for peregrines, and inspire a new audience about the wonder of this fascinating raptors. Enjoy the exciting spectacle of nesting peregrine falcons in Lincoln city centre at the Date with Nature event at Lincoln Cathedral, and share your interest and knowledge with members of the public visiting the stand. The stand, run by the Lincoln RSPB Local Group, aims to bring people closer to the wildlife on their doorstep, providing an enjoyable experience for all visitors and growing support for the charity by raising awareness of the RSPB and signing up new members. You will help us by meeting and greeting visitors, showing them how to use telescopes and binoculars to view the peregrines, explaining what people are seeing and enthusing them about the RSPB's conservation work. Although not an essential requirement of this role, if you are happy to, it would be great to ask non-members if they'd like to help the peregrines they came to see and supporting conservation by joining the RSPB. Public support is crucial as it enables the RSPB to carry out our vital conservation work the more members we have, the bigger voice we have for nature.
