Ely Wildlife Watch is looking for volunteers to help deliver monthly wildlife sessions to children as its two leaders retire from their roles.

The group is in “urgent need” of volunteers who would like to register as leaders as long-standing leaders as Clive and Helen are stepping down for retirement.

Wildlife Watch, which is the junior branch of the Wildlife Trusts and the UK’s leading environmental action club for kids, encourages five to 11-year-olds to have an interest in wildlife, and the world around them.

It runs practical conservation activities, wildlife themed arts and crafts, insect surveys, pond dipping and night walks.

Jo Evans, leader at Ely Wildlife Watch, said: “Watch leading is a very rewarding role. You don’t need to be an expert in wildlife, just enthusiastic, concerned about the environment and enjoy working with children and young people.”

Ely Wildlife Watch takes place for two hours on the second Saturday of each month and you’ll receive training and support from The Wildlife Trust.
