Help at a conservation charity for endangered vultures in Wales, UK



 Estancia mínima:  Al menos 2 semanas



  • Descripción


    We are a conservation charity for endangered vultures based in 110 acres of varied landscape we are managing for wildlife and biodiversity. We have a collection of vultures who need caring for and their aviaries require constant upkeep, we also have gardens to tend to and meadows, scrub and forestry to look after. Our days are varied, we begin making sure the birds are cared for but also spend a lot of time tackling the grounds, keeping vegetation clear from aviaries, removing invasive plants and maintaining out patches of forestry. We run the site as sustainably as possible meaning we take on all these tasks ourselves. Although not all of our work is directly with the vultures it is all for their benefit, and we are happy to teach people as much as we can about the birds and their importance.

    Our day to day work involves providing care for the vultures we house for our conservation work, helping to feed and clean out doing our daily husbandry routines are our first tasks of the day. We spend a ot of our time trying to maintain and improve the housing for out birds so there is lots of cleaning, building/refurbishing and keeping plants and trees clear from the aviaries. This varies at different times of the year particularly if the birds are breeding and we limit time in the aviaries during this time.
    We are also looking for help in maintaining and improving our beautiful site by clearing invasive plant species like rhododendrons, and managing the woodland and ponds. We need help to maintain the aviaries and replacing aging infrastructure to give the birds the best housing we can. The gardens around the buildings and aviaries also need some love and care from someone with greener fingers than we have.
    We also welcome people who are happy to get involved in cleaning and decorating around the house as we improve the site for people joining our project

    We are in a rural location so having your own transport is preferable so you have the freedom to explore the local area in your down time, our local town is full of independent shops and has a tight knit community feel. There are attractions such as national trust properties and ornamental gardens etc nearby and lots of walking and beautiful countryside on our doorstep too.
    We have a two very friendly larger dogs who calls the place home also, so please be ready to show them some affection.
    The weather does dictate how we spend our days so please be prepared for all weathers and also be flexible. We work seven days a week so time off can be varied and we are happy to work that out when you are here so you have time for yourself to recharge and enjoy the setting.
