Froglife - Volunteers Assistant

Details of the Charity:

Froglife is a national wildlife conservation charity concerned with the conservation of the UK’s amphibian and reptile species and their associated habitats. 

The London T.O.A.D. Project is funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund to work across London boroughs to raise awareness of the plight of the Common Toad, a species which has declined by 68% in the last 30 years. Through public engagement, education and habitat work our small team has reached thousands of people already, spreading a passion for these often misunderstood creatures and providing practical tips on how to help them locally and nationally.

Details of the Volunteering Opportunity:

Regular volunteering opportunities:

- One day a week in the office at Spitalfields City Farm: Essential administration tasks including logging feedback, filing images, website updates, social media posts (Twitter/Facebook/Instagram) and specific tasks dictated by upcoming events. By helping in this capacity you will be making a significant contribution to our small London team. Please state specific skills you would like to use e.g. graphic design, copywriting. Please note, cats live in the office so this role is not suitable for allergy sufferers.
