Help Make A Difference: Environmental Charity Volunteer Appeal Visits Brighton

The Wildlife For All Trust is an environmental charity with a unique approach. Like many other organisations, it works to conserve endangered species and habitats. Unlike other organisations, it puts a lot of emphasis on tackling human problems such as greed, selfishness, and the "me, me, me" mentality. 



The charity trains its team members to understand how these psychological factors have a huge impact on the success or failure of nature conservation projects.

As Vicky from Wildlife For All puts it:

"I've been working for the charity for over nineteen years and in that time I have witnessed great achievements from my colleagues, working together towards a common goal. 

"I've seen us get Oasis Woods and the incredible Komsberg Wilderness Nature Reserve, making ideas or dreams become reality."

Wildlife For All knows that the key to the causes of our environmental problems, and to any realistic chance of overcoming them, lies in changing the way we think about the world around us. 

The charity is looking for people to whom this deeper approach appeals, and who would like the chance to get involved with its work, which includes nature reserves in Sussex and South Africa.  All staff all purposely work on a non-paid basis (supporting themselves with other paid jobs).

Another team member, Cassie, added:

"Working with Wildlife For All has possibly been the most eye-opening, empowering and purposeful time in my life, and that is no small statement!"

Wildlife For All will be holding interviews in Brighton on Thursday 14th June. Please visit www.wildlifeforall.org for further details, including how to apply (on the "Interviews" page).
