David has been a volunteer at the London Wetland Centre since 2004 and works largely with corporate volunteers, acting as an ambassador for WWT’s wider conservation work. He uses his platform to spread the word about how crucial wetlands are to both people and wildlife, and how individuals can make a difference to wetland conservation. David works both to maintain and improve the presentation of exhibits at the centre and carries out labour intensive work to improve habitats for wildlife on site. In 2019, David worked with around 900 corporate volunteers which brought in much needed revenue for WWT, as well as helped to spread the message of the importance of wetland conservation. He is a strong advocate of the importance of wetlands for bat populations and have supported the organisation and delivery of bat walks, helping to both attract core audiences and bring in new visitors to the London Wetland Centre. David gives over 250 hours to his volunteering each year and receives positive feedback from everyone he comes into contact with.
