1-7 June, every year the UK celebrates “Volunteers’ Week,” which is a campaign that was established in 1984 by Volunteering England, which merged with NCVO in 2013. NCVO now leads this UK-wide campaign!
Did you know: Our sightings network for example is run entirely by the data and sightings collected by volunteers! We have countless volunteers all around the UK who take time out of their day to collect effort data which we can use to monitor cetaceans and even more who send in sightings they have when they are out and about.
We have been posting daily videos of our Sea Watch supporters and volunteers – the special ones that allow us to function and do all the things we do. If you are not caught up, you catch watch all the videos from this week below:
