Threat Detectors - Woods under Threat

Woodland Trust

South-East, South-West and North of England

Volunteer • Part Time

Sectors: conservation & wildlife, ecology

Closing date: Not specified, apply soon!

Our ancient woodland is increasingly under threat from development, new roads and railways. We need your help to keep abreast of planning applications registered across the South-East, South-West and the North of England and to analyse the impact of Local Development Plans on woods and trees.

Once planning applications that threaten ancient woodland are identified, we need to gather our evidence and formulate effective responses as quickly and efficiently as possible.

We need help to stop precious ancient woodland being destroyed. The best way to tackle this issue is with eyes and ears on the ground to alert us when threats arise.

This is a home-based volunteering role. Training will be provided but knowledge of planning applications, map reading and the ability to carry out research would be advantageous.

We are currently only looking for threat detectors in the regions mentioned above at this present time but please do check our Opportunities page for alternative roles as we really appreciate the valuable contribution our volunteers make to our cause.

Please see the full task outline for further details.
