Conwy biodiversity volunteers

Summary (optional)
start content

If you would like to help conserve Conwy's wildlife and countryside then why not become a Volunteer for Conwy County Borough Council’s Open Spaces Section?

There are many levels at which you can become involved depending on how much time you can give.

Wildlife Records

Recording where wildlife is found in Conwy is important to help us build up a better picture of Conwy's wildlife and can help inform important management decisions. Cofnod, the North Wales Environmental Information Service holds and manages wildlife data in the region. If you see any wildlife, from plants, to butterflies, mammals (marine or land) or birds then please record it via their website.

Wildlife Surveys

Many of the species of wildlife that occur in Conwy are highly under-recorded.  In order to learn more about wildlife's distribution and how it fluctuates from year to year, we are setting up a number of surveys to monitor them. Such surveys include butterfly and bird surveys. No experience is necessary and you will be provided with information or training prior to the surveys.

Reserve Management

At Conwy County Borough Council we manage a number of nature reserves. We often need volunteers to help out with practical site management, from scrub clearance to simply keeping an eye on the reserve local to you.
