Volunteer with us!

An amazing way you can help animals is to volunteer!

We’re always looking for wonderful volunteers to help us build our public awareness campaigns, videos, graphics, research, and many other exciting projects.

It takes a large network of people to create meaningful change for animals, and our volunteers are a huge part of that.  

Current and previous volunteers:

  • The video on the left was presented and produced by one of our talented volunteers, Alex Collins. It's a vital part of our School Awareness Programme to raise awareness of badger baiting among teenagers.
  • Our eye-catching cotton shopping bag was designed by another fantastic volunteer and is now sold in our online shop, raising crucial funds to support our work.
  • Our 'Safer Dog Handling Manual', a guide for Ukrainian police officers to refer to, was created by one of our brilliant graphic design volunteers.

They are just some of the people who kindly give up their time to support our work with their talent.

So, whether you would like to gain some experience in a professional and supportive environment creating work for the charity, or if you’re already well established and find yourself with a bit of time on your hands, check out this volunteering page to see upcoming opportunities and projects! 

If there is nothing available at the time you check, please feel free to send a copy of your CV to maddie@naturewatch.org with a short covering letter detailing why you would like to volunteer for us, and any examples of your work. This way, we can make sure to find you a volunteering role well-matched to your skillset and interests. 

So come and join our network of amazing volunteers! And help us in our mission to raise animal welfare standards across the globe. 

We look forward to hearing from you.
