What we're looking for
RSPB Dungeness nature reserve is a wonderful setting to volunteer, set back from the sea, boasting mile after mile of open shingle, fresh water pits, wet grassland and stunning wildflower meadows. Volunteers are an essential part of our overall workforce who directly contribute to the vital conservation work at Dungeness. We are looking for volunteers to help us monitor our breeding waders on the reserve (including lapwing and redshank) by counting the birds and identifying breeding behaviour including sitting on nests, chick alarming and displaying. This information helps us determine the current status of the population and whether the management we are currently undertaking is working or whether it needs developing.
