Whether you have an hour, a day or a week to give, there are plenty of opportunities open to you.

Volunteers are crucial to the work of Yorkshire Wildlife Trust. Volunteers enable us to manage great swathes of Yorkshire's wild places, run projects that safeguard habitats and species for future generations and educate young and old about the wildlife around them.

However much time you have, or wherever your skills lie, there are many ways in which you can help.

Find out more about the current volunteer roles available by choosing your geographical area above. We also offer voluntary traineeships which range from 6-months to one year in length and are perfect for picking up skills for a future career in conservation.


Volunteer Survey 2017

We had a fantastic 169 responses to the Volunteer Survey 2017. A huge thank you to all who took the time to respond and leave us their feedback. The data and information you sent has created some really useful evidence around the impact of your volunteering. You can be sure we will be using this in the coming months. Thank you.

Congratulations to Mark Moore and Paddy Hall who will each receive a copy of Mark Cocker’s book, Birds and Man.
