Volunteering at Murlough NNR
Murlough is a hugely valuable nature reserve which we manage in South Down. It is Ireland's first ever nature reserve and encompasses an incredible 16 percent of the UK’s dune heathland. We currently have three full-time rangers at Murlough and Mourne. If you add the additional 1,400 acres which we manage on Slieve Donard and Slieve Commedagh, it’s a huge area to look after. We depend on and value our volunteers, which are a must for Murlough.
At Murlough we see volunteering as a mutually beneficial partnership – a win for both the National Trust and the volunteer. Volunteers get to meet new people and learn new skills in a spectacular setting. We gain from getting vital help with the valuable work we do tackling invasive species and conserving our fragile habitats.
