About the opportunity
As a volunteer surveyor, you will be positioned at locations around Flamborough Head and Filey Brigg throughout the busy tourist season. You will be recording any recreational activities you see, particularly noting whether the seabirds respond to human presence. You will be assigned 4 locations (which will need to be surveyed for one hour each) and we ask that volunteers commit at least one day a week to this project.
