Volunteer positions for visitors are now closed, but please come along to one of our walks and talks to find out about the project during your visit.

If you live on the islands we still need you to be a Community Heritage Volunteer.

  • Do you want to know more and help make a difference?
  • Can you spare a few minutes, or even a few hours?

If so, we would love to hear from you!

Volunteering is a great way to be involved with the project and learn new skills. Please get in touch if you would like to help support this exciting project and be a ’seabird ambassador‘.

Contact us at volunteer@ios-seabirds.org.uk, or call 01720 422153 or 07881 517 047
