Skills and Qualifications


You don’t need to be a wildlife or biodiversity expert to take part – all we need is your enthusiasm and dedication!


Your volunteer co-ordinator or group co-ordinator will give you training in basic practical habitat management techniques.

We will be organising more specific training for more specialist surveys and habitat management on our Greener Greenway routes depending on what is found on each route.

Sustrans in-house ecologists will also be contactable at all times to provide guidance and feedback on the work you do.

Sustrans organises a number of all-volunteer days throughout the year, which will offer valuable updates, networking opportunities with other volunteers, and training in relevant skills.

You will also receive regular communications to support you in your role, and can join the online community to find support from other wildlife volunteers.

Health and safety guidelines and simple risk assessments will be provided.
