A number of young people living in Harwich and the surrounding areas would like to start a career in the animal, wildlife and conservation industry but struggle to find work experience or employment. If this is you and you are between 18-25, why not come and get involved in The Harwich Wildlife Project where young people are already running activities including bug house building, camera traps and bird surveys.
The aim of this project is to provide wilderness areas in which the community can be involved as volunteers or visitors. We aim to provide a place where scientific studies can be carried out and offer an opportunity for people to develop their knowledge of wildlife. Due to British wildlife de-clining, this project is important in encouraging members of the community to look after our wildlife.
For your chance to get involved in this brand new activity contact Fern Lovett, Wildlife Coordinator on 01255 504800 or email email@example.com.
"The Harwich Wildlife Project is a great way to get involved with the community and get to know what wildlife we have in Harwich. Bird walks and wildlife workshops/theories every week allow us to up skill and gain knowledge on all areas of wildlife. If wildlife and upskilling yourself is something you're interested in then it'd be a great project to get involved in."

500 Mile Fundraising Challenge
Fern Lovett will be raising funds for the Harwich Wildlife Project by cycling, walking and running a total of 500 miles between the 11 June and 11 July. This means travelling at least 16 miles a day to hit the goal! There's still plenty of time to help Fern reach her fundraising target. Just click the button below to make your donation through the Harwich Wildlife Projects Local Giving page.
