Vicki Mercer is volunteering with our London Dragon Finder project. Her top tips for volunteering were:
- Just do it! Volunteering can lead you on an incredible journey and provide you with unforgettable memories. The memories I cherish the most have all been when I am volunteering.
- Try everything once; you won’t know what anything is like until you’ve given it a go. You will be surprised at what you can do and love it.
- You learn so much by volunteering.
- Volunteering is enjoyable, you meet lovely people, do something worthwhile, and occasionally glimpse incredible wildlife.
- Not all wildlife conservation volunteering involves getting muddy outside! If that isn’t for you, search
around as there are so many opportunities.
