We are excited to be joined by two enthusiastic student naturalists. They will be working with us to build their natural history and conservation skills over the next few months.
Passionate students Bryony and Alex recently joined the team to complete a work placement as part of their university courses. They will be working with our volunteers at Gosforth Nature Reserve and helping with winter talks, events, citizen science.
Alex is a Zoology Student at Newcastle University and Bryony is studying Wildlife Conservation at Aberystwyth University. They are joining us for nine and six months respectively, aiming to gain a practical understanding of what it means to work in the field of conservation and for a charity.
Involvement in the environmental field has never been more important, and we understand that this has made the sector incredibly competitive. The NHSN is well placed to help young people develop their skills and experience.
This is exactly what we hope to achieve by providing work placement students with the skills necessary to advance in their chosen field. In doing so, we can make sure that North East natureis held in safe hands over the years to come.
