Queenborough Harbour Trust is looking for volunteers who will help us to strengthen our focus on developing good environmental practices. This would involve assisting us with:
- Working with environmental agencies. Currently the harbour area comes under the jurisdiction of two Marine Conservation Zones (MCZs), Special Protection Area (SPA), Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and Natural England. We are looking for volunteers to help us interpret their requirements and represent us to them.
- Representing the environment in our written and social media. This would include assisting with words and pictures to go into the QHT Harbour Guide, Newsletter, QHT website and Facebook. Topics would include bird, fish, mammal identification, the dangers of invasive species, current and future schemes to preserve and enhance the environment.
- Running events in conjunction with environmental organisations such as Kent Wildlife Trust to help raise the awareness of our mooring holders, visitors and the general public of the unique environment which is on our doorstep.
- Carrying out practical activities such as bird surveys at different times of the year, auditing QHT’s activities for their environmental impact, e.g. waste management, organising beach cleans and so on.
If you are interested, then we would very much like to hear from you and discuss the help that you can offer and the support that we can give. Please contact the Harbour Controller on 01795 662 051 or email email@example.com
