A new opportunity has been added to MCRVIP by Lancs Wildlife Trust, starts 29 June 2019

Join in this opportunity now.

We are looking for enthusiastic and outgoing volunteers to help ask visitors at the Festival of Nature to complete Manchester’s My Wild City survey.

The Wildlife Trust has partnered up with Manchester City Council to celebrate and improve the wildlife and wild spaces right across the city, but to do this we need everyone’s help. We have developed a short survey for as many people as possible to complete! All the answers will help shape the way we protect wildlife and contribute to the new 10-year vision for biodiversity in Manchester.

Here is a link to the survey: https://www.lancswt.org.uk/mywildcity

The Festival is aimed at families and you will be asking visitors to complete this 5 minute survey on the spot – either on a tablet, phone or paper copies. No experience is needed, you will be given all the information and equipment you need on the day.

You can volunteer for the whole Festival, 12pm to 4pm, or just for part of it.

This is a chance to soak up the exciting Festival of Nature atmosphere, see the activities on offer from a wide range of environmental organisations, and talk to lots of people.
