What we're looking for
We are looking for an enthusiastic residential volunteer intern to join our team at Farnham and Hazily Heaths. Farnham Heath is part of the Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and is one of the RSPB's largest lowland heathland reserves with over 97 hectares (240 acres) of newly restored heath. The RSPB purchased the site in 2002 as a dark and gloomy conifer plantation and began management to restore the site to its former heathland glory. Hazily Heath is a newer, quieter reserve with a feeling of space that belies its size. It is part of the internationally important Thames Basin Heaths Special Protection Area for birds, and is designated a Site of Special Scientific Importance. This is a fantastic opportunity to gain experience undertaking conservation work on some of the rarest habitats on Earth. You will assist with the habitat management, species monitoring and people engagement across two of the RSPB's finest Lowland Heath sites.
