There are lots of different ways you could give your time to help us in our mission to protect amphibians and reptiles! We aim to make volunteering with us as fun and rewarding as possible, so that you get as much out of it as the wildlife you are helping.
You don’t always need knowledge or experience to get started, and we can often tailor volunteering posts around your needs and interests whether it be practical work digging ponds, helping our education team on a session or using your IT skills to help improve our web presence.
Listed below are just some of the opportunities available for potential volunteers. If you have a particular volunteer post in mind, but can’t find it here, do get in touch and we will see what we can do for you: firstname.lastname@example.org
Currently Froglife manages three nature reserves on behalf of the landowners, each located near Peterborough, Cambridgeshire.
Tasks can include:
- Scrub clearance
- Creating egg-laying sites for grass snakes
- Pond management
- Creating hibernacula
- Species surveying (birds, butterflies and water voles, as well as amphibians and reptiles)
If you love being outdoors, enjoy inspiring young people and thrive on making a practical difference to gardens or other habitats, Green Pathways is the perfect project for you.
We are currently looking for hardy volunteers to help with all aspects of the project from fundraising to promotion but especially to work alongside the young people. Training in working with vulnerable teenagers will be provided along with appropriate DBS checks. Other training needs will be discussed with individual volunteers and provided if possible.

We are creating an exciting digital film on local geological, natural, and social history and will be holding film screenings at local schools and community venues. The film will be focusing on the history and heritage present under the surface of the current visible landscape and connecting this to our 8 key sites and the wildlife that now lives there, particularly reptiles and amphibians.
