Advisor Network

A Rocha UK Volunteer Advisors Network comprises a group of naturalists and people with building experience who are willing to give their time to help you understand more about how to better care for the environment.

Ask a volunteer naturalist?

The team of naturalists would love to answer your nature questions and between them have experience in a wide range of land management and nature issues - whether you have wildlife or plants you want to identify, or you have questions about hedgerow management, marine life, ponds and wetlands - or in fact a whole host of other issues! The advisors come from all parts of the UK so someone will understand something of your locality. If you have questions about species or habitat please email or complete the form here:

Ask a building volunteer building advisor?

We also have a team of people with church buildings experience who are willing to give their time to help Eco Churches tackle the tricky subject of creating sustainable church buildings. Many of these, are people who have been through the Eco Church journey already and a few with relevant professional backgrounds - so if your church would like a conversation about aspects of the Eco Church survey and making your buildings more eco-friendly do email or complete the form here:
In each case the inbox and form requests are monitored and you will be passed to a volunteer who will respond to you. The volunteer will discuss your query with you and share their experience, but we regret our volunteers cannot offer professional or detailed technical advice.
