If you can spare a little time to lend Nature a helping hand, we’d love to have you on board!

The amount we can achieve depends entirely on our volunteers, so the more we have the more we can get done.

In todays’ changing world, Nature faces challenges like never before – population and infrastructure growth demanding more and more space – droughts, floods, heatwaves and other Climate change issues  – all happening at such a rate many species simply do not have time to adapt.  

Our mission is to help and protect Nature within West Norfolk, whenever and wherever we can. 

Species once common in our lifetimes are struggling for their very survival, and sadly, without help, things will continue to get worse. 

More houses, more roads mean more land taken from Nature, and, more pollution from fossil fuels to heat homes and power vehicles means more pressure on an already struggling natural world. 

Put simply, Mother Nature needs all the help she can get, and that is why the Nature Volunteer Network was founded.
