Information for Students and Volunteers

Essex Wildlife Trust has over 2000 volunteers that help out with a variety of tasks, from admin work and helping to run our visitor centres, to practical conservation work and helping with surveys. At the records centre we are dependent on our volunteers for much of our survey work, and they also assist us in data collation and digitisation, planning surveys and mapping the results.

Most of our survey work is done between March and September, but some surveys can be done in the winter months and data collation and analysis takes place all year round.
