Volunteers are a vital, everyday element to the operations of ERCCIS and we have an amazing team of volunteers. ERCCIS understands the reasons why people volunteer are many and varied and would like to involve people in a way that will make it a mutually rewarding and enjoyable experience. Volunteering for ERCCIS is an excellent way to make contacts with those involved in nature conservation and build key skills to develop your career.
The work at ERCCIS is varied, so no matter what your skill base we are interested to hear from you. Some of the work ERCCIS volunteers do includes: processing wildlife records for the ERCCIS database; assisting the Wildlife Information Service; helping to manage the ERCCIS website and social media sites; validating species records; various GIS projects; helping to write species and habitat guides and many other potential tasks!

Hedges Project Mapping Volunteer
Through 2017 ERCCIS are looking for volunteers to help with our Hedges Project. The work with the Hedges project is mainly desk based, and involves checking hedge lines against aerial photography using ArcGIS to remove any anomalies. We have a number of volunteers working on this map, and we’re aiming to complete the map by the end of 2017 so it’s a huge undertaking.
We're looking for volunteers with some experiecne with ArcGIS, and with good attention to detail.
If your're interested in volunteering with the ERCCIS Hedges Project please contact the ERCCIS Data Officer - Laura Guy-Wilkinson
