We're looking for volunteers to assist with the conservation of Little Terns at Kilcoole this season.
No experience is necessary, all we ask is that you're keen to help out & willing to learn lots about seabirds in the process!
Some of the typical duties which are often carried out by volunteers include:
- Assisting with the construction of protective fencing around the tern colony at the start of the breeding season.
- General ecological monitoring throughout the summer (flock counts, chick feeding studies etc.).
- Liaising with members of the public, providing general information on the terns & conservation project as well as facilitating viewing of breeding birds from a safe distance through telescopes.
- Ensuring disturbance from humans & dogs is kept to a minimum.
So if you'd like to spend some time this summer helping to protect one of Ireland's rarest breeding birds then please get in touch with us by e-mail on firstname.lastname@example.org
