Could you bring your expertise to the development of policy for WOS?

We’ll have at least three crucial vacancies on WOS Council from November 2020. We have lots of great birders who could serve with distinction on Council, but at the moment we really would like applications from birders with organisational and planning skills, good contacts with policy organisations and the Welsh government. We would love to hear from you if you think you could make such a contribution to the direction of WOS – particularly important at a time when conservation is taking a poor second place to issues such as the COVID-19 pandemic and post-Brexit negotiations.

Small grants and bursaries

We’re pleased to provide funding support for one application – a Swift project and although it’s not the first Swift project we’ve supported, the evidence suggests that these projects are very successful in meeting the criteria that WOS sets.
