Volunteer at Chesil

The Chesil Beach Centre is run by a team of local volunteers. If you are interested in the natural history of the area, and would like to join us, please get in touch. No specialist knowledge is required, just a willingness to talk to the public, to learn about the centre and local wildlife and enthusiasm.

It’s a great way to meet people, find out more about local wildlife and help support DWT. There is a programme of social and training activities for volunteers, and you can also to attend most of our public events for free!

If you can spare a few hours a week, and would like to find out more, then email: or phone us on 01305 206191.

Sponsor a plank

We would like to give you the chance to leave a lasting reminder of what Chesil Beach and its wildlife means to you or someone close to you. 

For only £50 you can sponsor a plank and have a brass plaque bearing your message permanently installed on the boardwalk leaving a lasting contribution to this special place.

Your sponsorship money will be used to fund the education work at the Centre.
