National Trust London & South East local placement opportunity

National Trust London & South East are looking for a Kent student or graduate to look at their wildlife data, and help establish systems to ensure historical data is collated digitally.

Potential projects and tasks could include:

  • Looking at historical data for birds (breeding, migrating or whatever) and butterflies on the chalk/clifftop grassland
  • Ensuring that we have good links with local “amateur naturalists” and species recorders and that all data is being recorded and can be analysed
  • Identifying key species that we should manage for  – possibly focusing on those we have at present but also those that may move in or out because of climate change
  • Producing  a series of recommendations for future management
  • Helping with day-to-day management of local National Trust sites

This will be an unpaid position, but travel expenses can be claimed.
