Volunteer stories

Sam D, Community and Conservation Intern

“My internship at A Rocha UK has given me the opportunity to learn more about critical environmental issues and demonstrate my faith in a practical way. During my internship, I have heard from key voices in the conservation sector and been part of tangible ways that Christians are making a difference in caring for creation.

My time with A Rocha UK, based at the Southall office and at Wolf Fields urban nature reserve, has allowed me to further develop my passion and knowledge of conservation in a way that will benefit my degree as well as any future career in the conservation sector.”


Abigail L, Conservation Intern

“I joined A Rocha UK as the Conservation Intern to enhance my skills and get some work experience before studying for a masters in Conservation Science and Policy at Exeter. The internship has really helped me develop my field skills; collecting data on butterfly and bumblebee populations, surveying small mammals and bats, and bird ringing. 

I also worked closely with local community members on the Wolf Fields project in Southall project, managing various aspects of the community garden that relate to conservation. This included organising the planting of a community orchard, creating a wildlife pond, sourcing a shipping container for secure storage, and getting this into place! Taking on the project management of these developments was daunting but really rewarding.”
