The work of FoSL requires volunteers. We have no paid professionals, although we employ contractors from time to time. Our committee members are all volunteers. So too are those who help on work parties, lead wildlife walks, conduct wildlife surveys etc. We estimate that each year in excess of 500 man hours, i.e. circa 3 man months, is contributed by volunteers to the work of FoSL. For further information please read this report of FOSL Volunteer hours expended in 2017.
There is only one rule governing our volunteer work; namely does the work contribute to achieving the stated objectives of FoSL? How you go about your job will depend on you, particularly your enthusiasm, determination, resourcefulness and how much time you are prepared to give to the job. You can make it a big or a small job. It is up to you. Every little helps. Below is a list of the roles we are currently seeking to fill.
