Given the challenges of Covid-19, we’ve had to adapt in the way that we volunteer and one of the ways in which we’ve done this is by offering micro-volunteering.
"There was a great range of opportunities available but I opted for the ‘Instant Wild’ charity which help towards the conservation of endangered species.
By using the last 30 minutes of my day, I was able to register with the charity and use my time to start tagging animals in live photos – it was super easy and was a great feeling knowing I was making a difference to the charity by identifying animals caught on camera.
I've also been able to log into this site on my personal device so I can continue this at home & continue using my downtime to support Instant Wild!"
"I have recently taken part in micro-volunteering during work by using my time to support the charity ‘Instant Wild’. There were a wide variety of charities to choose from ranging from writing postcards to care homes to helping animals at risk of becoming extinct.
I chose this charity because I think wildlife organisations can often get ignored and people forget what happens to animals and their habitats due to the development of the human race.
For my activity I watched live photos and videos of African safari animals in their natural habitat, I then had to identify the different species that could be seen. This included elephants, buffalos and warthogs just to name a few. By doing this activity, I have added to the database that scientists use to help conserve and protect endangered animals from becoming extinct. It will also help them to understand threats and improve safeguarding.
I feel like even though it was such an easy task to complete it was also very enjoyable and I have contributed to helping endangered animals in the wild."
