Our weekly Skomer volunteers play an important part in visitor management and engagement, assisting with morning and afternoon visitor boats and undertaking island patrols. They also get involved in monitoring - including reptile transects and cetacean surveys - and the daily cleaning of the hostel and the compost toilets!

On days when visitor boats aren’t running the team get stuck in with a variety of island maintenance and habitat management tasks – from painting to scything, from fencing to making and mending.

Applications have now closed for 2022.
