How Can You Help?

(1) Volunteer on a seabird project
There's plenty of opportunity & several different ways you can get involved with many of BirdWatch Ireland's seabird projects. This might include:
  • Helping out with censusing & productivity monitoring at a seabird colony (not as hard as it sounds!).
  • Spending a few hours as a relief warden at the Kilcoole Little Tern colony.
  • Signing up to do a Seatrack survey.
  • Lending a hand in the office with data entry from any of the above projects.
Please feel free to contact us if you wish to get involved in any way shape or form!
