Conservation Volunteers Wanted for 13th-16th July - June 2012


The Isle of Rum Community Trust Ranger Service is looking for 6 volunteers to assist with Rhododendron clearance (using the Lever and Mulch technique), and wildlife Rhododendron (c) Mike Werndlygardening in our Community Garden.

We would prefer applicants to have some experience in this field already i.e., students and trainee land managers who would like more to add to their CV. However, other applications will be considered. You will need to be physically fit, have a good sense of humour and an interest in the environment (and not too bothered by midges; midge jackets will be’s not always bad on here anyway!?).
Successful applicants will be provided with accommodation for the duration of their stay (in our new cabins) and ferry tickets to and from the island (you will have to make your own way to Mallaig our nearest port), and everyone will be rostered on for cooking duties (1 in 3 not bad).
The evenings will be free, so plenty of time to explore. The island has red-throated divers, manx shearwaters, golden eagles, otters and many other interesting species.
If this is for you please send a CV and short covering letter/e-mail to Mike Werndly or IRCT Office Kinloch Castle, Isle of Rum, Inverness-shire PH43 4RR by Friday June 22nd.  Successful applicants will hear back by June 29th at the latest.
