Volunteer

We couldn’t achieve what we do without the amazing support of volunteers who give up their time to help us as we continue the fight against wildlife crime.

Take a look below at the different opportunities and how to join the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation (DSWF) conservation family. Also visit our Jobs section for paid opportunities.

Internship opportunities

An internship is a great way of gaining fantastic experience as an integral part of a busy conservation NGO, whilst providing invaluable support to our core team and work.

If you would like to be considered for an intern opportunity, please email us at dswf@davidshepherd.org with your CV and a covering letter explaining why you would like to work for DSWF, the type of internship you are interested in (i.e. fundraising, policy/programmes or general) and the hours or days you are available

Office support at DSWF

We welcome support from those who would like to join us in the office (based in Shalford, near Guildford), to help with some of the day-to-day admin that is vital to keep us running. To join our team, email us at dswf@davidshepherd.org letting us know your availability and what you think your key skills are.

Event volunteering

As a small fundraising team, we are always looking for keen volunteers to help at our events including the Wildlife Artist of the Year exhibition, Wildlife Ball, our Christmas Concert and also our challenge events. You can find out more about our events here, and please email us at dswf@davidshepherd.org letting us know which you’re available for.
