Other Volunteering Roles

Walker on estuary path

There are a number of ways to contribute and give back to the Suffolk & Essex Coast & Heaths National Landscape that don't involve carrying out practical conservation work.

These roles still let you enjoy the area, get outdoors and enjoy all the other benefits of volunteering, in a more accessible and less physical way.

One type of role is Coast & Estuary Wardens, who provide valuable on the ground support. Wardens walk and survey the footpaths along the coast and estuary and report any problems such as litter, pollution, bait digging, disturbance, dog fouling.

Another example is our Promoted Route Volunteers who survey our walks twice a year to record obstructions, vandalism, erosion and other potential issues. Where able, they undertake some simple maintenance tasks, such as cutting back overhanging vegetation and replacing missing waymark discs.

Other roles include engaging with members of the public to raise awareness of our nature recovery efforts, such as supporting the redshank population.
